People will talk about you, some will say nice things, some will complain.
Someone out there wants to hear from you. Someone out there wants to make a connection.
This will happen online and offline, with friends and strangers.
You can choose not to pay attention, but all this will continue regardless, and all you will be is alone and suffering.
Isn’t it better to listen? Just for a little while?
What’s the best that could happen?
