  • All the hurt of the world.

    I can't comprehend it. Everything from the kid getting picked on to the gorilla imprisoned in the zoo.

    I wonder if we all feel bad. At least, nobody seems to be always turned on/always happy.

    I've adjusted to some degree to my life, and would like to think I'm in the same boat, because it's bearable at the very least.

    Maybe it's conducive to good things to focus on the good things. It seems to be the consensus. But what of all the creatures for whom justice has failed?

    I hope a part of me will always be cognizant of that. Everything can't always be hunky dory or even right. It may be a lapse of reason, but I hope something, in the end, justifies all of this.

    I don't know if it's my own naivety, like, anthropomorphizing animals...I just worry about the idea that people and animals feel dejected.

    I feel that way, and I'm okay, though, so I don't know why I think others might be wounded beyond repair. And it's against my beliefs to think anything is beyond repair. I dunno. There's nothing I can do.

    Does reality ever sink in?

    I mean, what if some loyal, loving puppy ? dog never got his day in the sun. And that's all there was to it's existence. Can that ever sink in? I guess we just can't know.

      I know this feeling. It's very overwhelming. I have nothing really to offer about it. Most of the time I feel protected from feeling it by whatever brain mechanism. But when you feel it, it's huge. You just have to remember it isn't your responsibility to do anything other than live in a way that doesn't cause more of it.

        That's helpful advice.

          Do not be overwhelmed by your inability to dispel darkness from the world. Light your candle and step forward.
