Me too

I have come to learn that two of the most important words in the English Language are "Me too".

"Me too" forms a foundation for a relationship and relationship is the vehicle through which our larger questions are addressed.

The larger the question, the more important the relationship.

This is even when you disagree with the other person in the relationship.  There are really only two ways to overcome a disagreement:  coercion and consensus.  When it comes to life's larger questions, if you've chosen to go the less sustainable, less valuable route and use coercion, you probably won't bother to use "me too" because coercion is only ending a conversation, not resolving a disagreement.

Don't you hate it when that happens?

Yea, me too.
