Sometimes life hurts. It can hurt a lot, and it can hurt for a long time. When that happens, it's easy to feel like you're all alone. That's why, when you're in pain, a friend's "me, too" sounds like heaven.
"Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, 'What! You, too? I thought I was the only one.'" C. S. Lewis
"[Christ is] a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering." Isaiah 53:3
