I see too many instances of people getting upset, their feelings are hurt, and all they want to do is get an ounce of revenge, either physically or verbally. It only helps them to feel better knowing that the person or thing that hurt them is equally, if not more, hurt or offended.
Wouldn't it be a better world if we took that pain, that anger, that vengefulness, and used it for good? You know that feeling you get when you genuinely help someone, with no expectation of reward or compensat
What if you were left completely alone and no one cared for you? What if the walls around you were you best friends? What if this happened because you pushed so many people away with your actions, your behavior, your words?

I have nothing against the Black Lives Matter movement. Nor do I have anything against Blue Lives Matter. But when I get called out for suggesting that ALL lives matter because it "belittles" these causes, that's when I get upset.

But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life.
My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker.
In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!
