Sadness of Being Forgotten

Do you ever read something and for no apparent reason feel unsettling drawn to it for inexplicable reasons? That very thing happened to me last night. I started a new book which my coworker gave me, "The Last Summer (of You and Me)" by Ann Brashares [Same author as The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants]. While I can't technically recommend it yet, as I'm only 1/4 into it, I wanted to share this quote:

"Sometimes you couldn't face the sadness of being forgotten until you felt the comfort of being remembered again."

I can't tell you why this affected me so, but it took my breath away for some reason. Does it mean anything to you? Evoke any feelings? Or am I just being my crazy emotional self again?
