I am aware it is not uncommon for people who have suffered and been betrayed considerably in life, to become people who love the company of animals, rather than people.
I have only this year, had a dog in my life. She’s such lovely company. She’s still a puppy, and she’s playful and a little mischievous and simply adorable.
Animals offer that kind of love and affection, you don’t need to question. They are loyal. Traits that few people have that I have known in my life, have had.
The older I get, the less I want to spend time with people. My fortnightly ladies group, is enough people interaction for me. And I actually don’t want to get to know any of the ladies, more than needed for these group chats. I don’t want to find out things that make me anxious, or have to worry about.
I love being with my children, my dog and limited time with other people.
I do know I am introvert, who was always trying to be an extrovert, because extroverts are lorded as being how we should all be. Which is rubbish. Now, I don’t feel the need to try to be an extrovert.
I’m also aware I have always been alone, even when surrounded by people. And that continues.
But, I love the company of my dog and I’m already thinking of getting a rescue dog too. I feel so much empathy for animals who have been abandoned and/or treated badly. I guess that’s because I have endured this myself.
If anyone loves being with animals – more than people….. I get it.
