We try to help with a feeling of reciprocity. […] Having someone that you don’t know saying they feel the same way you do, they experience the same way…hearing their story.
It's more human in a way when you’re sharing something and the person in front of you is saying, “Well, I dealt with that. It’s true, I felt that”
