When ever we read/hear/see/listen (..) to someone else's experience we automatically assume that we know how the person experiencing it feels. We apply it to our own experience and somehow "we know how they feel". However, the reality is that very rarely (almost never) will you have had the same experience. Not only because even though situations may be similar to others EACH AND EVERY situation is different. There is no SAME experience only because the external factors are never ever the same. Second reason why you can never fully relate to others experience is that we all view things differently, i.e. from a different perspective, different lense. So next time someone is expressing their situation, don't say that you know how it is. Not only because it's annoying, but because you have no clue about how they feel.
