I don't think anyone can really know another on the deepest spiritual level. And to some degree, no one wants to.

I have been overwhelmed with loneliness these past weeks; I feel alone in this world. That the universe or God has somehow failed me.

As humans, we fail each other. We always fail each other. No one can satisfy the needs of others. And if no one can, then why should we dwell on resentment? Wouldn't it be far better to focus myself on the needs of others? If I feel failed by someone, it doesn't give me any special right to fail others. It doesn't even give me true cause to feel failed, if we are all being human. No grudges, no resentment, no failure. There is only to press on and do what I can for those around me, and those I meet along the way through life.

We are broken people who fail one another. I am a broken person who is meant to fail others. How can anyone blame anyone else for being human?
