What does IKHYF stand for?

I know how you feel

Someone who is simpatico with you may use IKHYF to stand for "I know how you feel." You're most likely to receive this acronym in text or chat messages from friends, family, or co-workers, who commiserate with your current situation.

While receiving IKHYF in a text or chat message might seem patronizing, it's best to assume that whoever sent you IKHYF did so with good intent. So rather than responding with "no, you don't" or "how dare you?!," consider responding to IKHYF with a simple thx.
