Day 3175: Not the only one

As a group therapist, I know that realizing you’re not the only one can be very healing. Yesterday, I tried to express that on Twitter with this tweet:

If you think that’s confusing, you’re not the only one. If you think that’s clever, you’re not the only one. No matter what you think, feel, or do about anything, you’re not the only one.

If you’re thinking that statement doesn’t capture how unique each one of us is, you’re not the only one.

If you’re afraid or not afraid of heights, you’re not the only one.

If you like accumulating possessions or you don’t, you’re not the only one.

If you like cats or you don’t, you’re not the only one.

Do any of my other images today remind you that you are not the only one?

Whatever you think about the Daily Bitch, you’re not the only one.

If you thought of this song while reading this post, you’re not the only one.

If you want a live version of “Not the Only One” by Bonnie Raitt, guess what?

If you can’t imagine seeing another live concert again in the company of that many people, you’re not the only one there, either.

Does it help to know you’re not the only one?

I’m grateful knowing that I’m not the only one, thanks to you!

  1. You are not the only one to think that lever to sweep out the cat toys is brilliant. You are not the only one is a great theme for a poem and I shall probably not be the only one to steal it!

  2. Back in 2012 Bonnie Raitt was on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and asked questions about Donnie Raitt, a man who didn’t seem to be related to her but claimed to be anyway. She was very funny and said she was sure Donnie really is related to her because “there aren’t that many of us”.
    I’m sure I’m not the only one who remembers silliness from radio shows, or who wishes we were still in 2012, or who’s really glad a segment from Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me is still available nine years later.

    I’m imagining that Harley is thinking, “That’s right, Joan, you go ahead and balance on a precarious 2 inch strip of wood. I’ll just keep all these toys for myself.”

  4. I love that image of Harley with the toys, and I know I’m not the only one.

  5. yes, it’s a great feeling to know i’m not the only one…

  6. It is important to realize that their is the cushion of togetherness. Thank you again, Ann!
