"Staying in your silence doesn't mean it goes away"-Wondell Moss
Healing begins when you allow one to follow you into your darkness and bear witness to your feelings of shame and deep emotional pain. You can hand over those negative perceptions you have of yourself and finally come out of those shadows. You can rediscover all of those wonderful versions of yourself that you have long forgotten.
The bonds we form with our animal companions can be deeper than bonds we form with others.
In childhood, we are supposed to learn that the ones caring for us are safe.

Recent Loss, whether it be a relationship or a job , can bring up unresolved grief leading to a low mood and depression.

You have dedicated your life to improving the lives of animals. This work is incredibly rewarding but can also be very emotionally draining and heartbreaking
