    Just you

    Hi,

    I'm unsure of how to express "the particularly you" in the phrase:

    "Perhaps just you have a story to tell from your unique perspective"

    Hope you get what I mean. I'm not addressing "you" but "the very you" sort of. Is it correct to use "just you" for that?

    Thanks

    No. And I'm not understanding what you're trying to say.

    Re: Just you

    OK, thanks. Hmm.. how should I express it better. Try this:

    Like another way of saying "you out of all people".
    Like you could say "the very man!" about someone. The way of saying the same if you addressed him directly.

    You can say "you yourself".
