"Somebody make me come through! I'll always be there, as frightened as you, to help us survive..."

If there’s one thing I’ve learned these past few years, it’s that I can no longer pretend that I can do everything myself. I can’t even operate as a human being in this world without help. I need someone to hold me just a little too close, to let me let my guard down, and to grant me the privilege to reciprocate. I need someone to remind me that what we owe to each other is as much as we are able to give. And so, dear listener, I beg of you: won’t you please, please help me? I hope you’ll allow me to do the same for you.
