I wasn’t taught to mock LGBT’s. I just observed the shortcuts other people used to achieve acceptance and popularity. How I un-learned bigotry, and why.
Loss and Regrets
It’s impossible to avoid experiencing loss and grief as we grow older. They are part of the human condition, as unavoidable as drawing breath. Knowing that, however, doesn’t make them any easier to bear.
And regret? it forms the basis of some of the most crushing emotions that we experience as we age:
- What could have been?
- What should have been?
- What have I missed out on... forever?
In these articles I explore these complex emotions, looking for sense in the suffering and hope that comes from endurance.
A life – even a pet’s life – grieved too long is a life with the meaning removed. The love and lasting gifts of Sadie, the best dog in the entire world. Your pet has the same lessons to teach, and you deserve memories of joy, not sorrow.
