Just one

You only need one person to hear your heartbreak. One person who gets it.

Everything shifts when one person believes you. Belief is validation, affirmation and encouragement. Belief means we're in this together. Belief works against the cultural gas-lighting that happens when your experience is denied or brushed off.

What happened to you is a big deal. It likely changed your life. Find your trusted someone and talk to her. 

Armies are for fighting battles, not building relationships.

Teams are focused on winning, not sharing vulnerabilities.

A critical mass means quantity influences outcome,

not quality influences outcome.

You only need one person who gets it.
