Each of us travels on a journey. We each face our own obstacles. We each have those things that are worth struggling for -- the things that, as Wallace states, we love so much that we would die for without thinking twice.
We share the journey in that we each take the journey. What we find in our own journey, the obstacles, the struggles, the pathways, will sometimes be similar to what others experience but often will be unique to us. We cannot truly know another's journey -- we can only know our own. It makes no sense to compare -- what good does that do to anyone?
Instead support one another along the journey that we are all taking -- care for one another, acknowledge and empathize with the hardships of each other, and be kind to each other. Our struggles and obstacles my be different, but we can share the journey together.
