Hmm. Maybe the crummy feeling isn't so bad then?Seems you realize the root of it- a necessary change. Perhaps the unpleasant feelings of frustration & will nag you until the soul is fulfilled. How is this landing w/ you?
hm. is there something we can do for you?
Feels stupid even to admit it bothers me so. He's just a dog. But damn, life is hard sometimes, even the little things.
We are at opposite right now. You are lonely, while I wish my dog would be more independent and realize that I'm struggling to handle everything without being asked to pet, play, etc. I'm sure he's not rejecting you. Being able to be away from you
seems like a sign he is comfortable with the life you've given him!
It can be pretty challenging some days. Rejection hurts, even if it's just perceived. The feeling of loneliness can also be heavy to bear. Youre not alone in this.
Well it's not just a dog it's a companion or even a friend. Sometimes when I feel sad and my cat doesn't want to come near me I feel rejected too. Is your dog coming off with something?
Maybe your dog is seeing another owner. Happened to a friend of mine. Broke his heart. One day he comes home and sees his dog with the neighbor playing frisbee. He never played frisbee with my friend. :(
Back to work is hard. And I have 3 days to accomplish 2 weeks' worth of work. Going to be very stressful. :(
sounds like you've experienced a lot of stress at work. Going through a bit of the same thing, too. Wishing us both equanimity and rest
Thanks, Love. Normally, my job isn't too stressful. And I don't really mind stress, when it keeps me focused. Plus, it feels good when it's passed. But this week will be a rough week, I think.
cool. ididnt know you paint. wait painting on canvas or painting a walk painting?
Great stuff Jeff
I imagine by the end of the week, I'll have most of the house stuff done, and hopefully there will be more time to relax.
Jeff is an industrious panda. Be like Jeff.
Sounds like they were helpful & you seem grateful for it. Good son. But also sounds like you're needing quiet space- downtime- to relax.
Fingers crossed you get the relaxing/alone time you need
Hope your parents don't drive you too crazy & you are able to at least enjoy that day off!
Looks like the week of funk has cracked and the seed of something new is germinating.
Woo-wee! We've got a whole new Jeff moving in! I'm excited! It's like a Panda makeover, but I hate those because I don't wear makeup. I suspect you don't either.
Sounds great, keep it up, enormous hugs to ya!
Jeff is amazeballs!
And a huge project due when I get back to work the next week. And I'm wasting this afternoon not working on it. So unmotivated...
I feel ya.
I'm sorry, Jeff - sounds tough. Hope it turns out better than you think xx
Not a good mix when those three are present.
