Unexpected

I had an unexpected reaction to someones comments on Facebook this week and I don’t know why it got too me so much. Breaking it down, my state has this incredible public Facebook page (well two at least) where people from all over the state can make public posts about if they have pets go missing. There’s one page that’s for any pet and another specific for dogs, cats, etc.

Now I am sure if you are a pet owner, you know around New Years it can be dangerous for pets when it comes to fireworks. They can scare them and make them so scare they will just go for it and run. These two pages are just FULL of missing pets around this time every year, some end up being happy stories, some not so much.

There was one story I was reading and my heart broke. Now I must say apart from the owners saying that the dogs had dug under the fence, there was no other mention about things like, if the owners were even home, if the dog had ever suffered from fear of fireworks before. The only two things for certain was that the dog dug under the fence, and the fireworks would have gone off illegally. There was this one poster though that made a comment about how selfish the owners were for leaving the dog outside.

And it made me SO mad! I couldn’t help myself, I tore into this person, as well with others.

What is it with me and animals? I cannot help myself. I also could not believe this person couldn’t see how inappropriate their comments were. They were just so unnecessary.

I think that I found my weakness!

Share Your World … Week 37

(I’m just warning you all, this ones a bit long!)

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

I don’t think that I have really ever owned a pet rock or jem that is Jewellery. I do remember once someone giving me a very pretty rock that was painted beautifully, but I never considered it to be a pet. I had a lot of plush toys, so I never really needed a rock pet, I guess?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Strength – A lot of people say that I am one of those people who is just there for others. I think it’s one of my strengths, sometimes I don’t even realise how weird it is how I’m there for people. One particular situation that stood out was after I broke up with an ex, there were all these girls who thought he was going to date them…And he didn’t, and they all came to me, trying to hurt me initially I guess, to get back at him? I managed to turn it around and ended up being their friend. I felt kind of bad for them really, he cheated on me with all these girls, but he also clearly made them feel like they were “the one”. He didn’t seem to really care how much he had led them on either. I helped them and I was over him before they were.

Weakness – As strong as I feel these days and I feel I can stand more on my own when it comes to my point of views and beliefs. I wish I just didn’t have so many “triggers”! There are some topics, especially on Facebook where I still get really wound up and get emotional with people and their comments, instead of just ignoring it. I recently unliked a page because of their refusal to even acknowledge, that men do in fact suffer from family and domestic violence.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Spending some times with my furbabies, they just want love really…Except for the cat, sometimes he just want food and for me to let him in and out of the house (we rent, so we can’t put in a cat flap). Other then them, I love having a shower and/or bath and listen to music that takes me away, like Enya, anything Celtic, anything “mythical”, if that is even a music genre,lol.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not eat cold food again, although a lot of salads are “cold”…Or are they more neutral? I love having hot food during Winter, it makes me feel warm on the inside, which then radiates through the rest of me. Whereas I don’t really feel like that with cold food, except for maybe ice blocks/ice cream.
