In regular conversations, a certain use of the verb "relate" is quite common. My impression is that it means one recognizes or is able to understand a situation someone else is experiencing. For example:
After my father died, I lost all interest in my work. — I can relate to that, the same thing happened to me when my mother passed away.
My first Esperanto-meetup was amazing. It was as if, until then, I had not fully believed the language works. — I can totally relate!
I have trouble realting to the main character. Maybe that is the reason I didn't enjoy the book.
What can I say in Esperanto?
