We all ask ourselves at some point: Why am I alone? Why am I insecure? Why do I get rejected?Am I worthy of love at all? There seems to be a pattern in human thought, yet there is no solution as to why we universally think this way. Stories. My story. Your story. Our stories. Fleeting moments of vulnerability. That might be a way of getting closer to the answer. This publication seeks for that very answer by collecting a series of stories and interviews from different subjects through the use of related sentiments. It is a compilation of a series of parallel narratives from people who may never actually meet. Yet they all share common feelings and emotions that could possibly help others cope. That is the objective: not necessarily finding an "answer," but coping with day-to-day life.
