I know, no serious problem can be fixed overnight, or even in a relatively short period of time. One of my biggest issues is definitely thinking of things to be thankful for. If someone asks me what I'm thankful for, I can always give a decent list, but on my own it never crosses my mind. Yea, there are people who would miss me, and don't want anything to happen to me (they tell me all the time), and while that makes me feel good, part of me also feels irritated. It makes me feel like I'm living for everyone else, and not for myself, like I'm obligated to sit through this every day because they want me to. I know that sometimes you have to do that in order to get to the point where you're doing things for yourself, but I haven't gotten there yet and it's been quite a while. I have ALWAYS needed to please people, so every choice I make, from what movie to watch to how to live my life, is based on what others want. Sometimes I just want to do what I want to do, but usually it doesn't work out, since the things I want to do usually aren't constructive. It's a dilemma.
Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!
