When we first got Dos almost a year ago, I was pretty mad. We already had two other dogs and to be honest, I was mad that my sister got a dog when she struggled and I got a feeding tube when I struggled. Fast forward to now and I am unbelievably grateful for this cute doggie. She goes on runs with me, she snuggles with my sister, she plays with my brothers, and she makes everyone laugh.
I’m really sad that I put so much energy into being ungrateful for something that has brought me so much joy. I’m also really sad that I compared my experience to my sister’s experience. We are all in different situations and all require different needs for our struggles. There’s no reason to compare our struggles with someone else’s struggles. Focus your energy on what you can do for you and I promise you’ll cultivate more gratitude 🖤
