Grief.. is just love with no place to go.
Grief is something that we all go through at one point or the other in our lives.

Today, i want to talk about the grief that we animal welfare folks go through day in an day out. It is never spoken much about because it is taken for granted that we are strong folks.

It is assumed that because we see and face so much cruelty daily, we are used to it and it doesn’t hurt us so much over time.

That is definitely not true. We are emotional beings too. Probably overly emotional as compared to others and that is why we choose to go through these experiences with the animals.

We don’t have a choice but to put up a brave front because we have no time to grieve.
While we are crying over the death of one animal, there’s another one that needs our help and if we give in to our emotions we won’t be able to function.

I have noticed that most times, animal welfare folk are irritable- and let me tell you – it is not a good feeling for ourselves either.
Unknowingly this passes on to our homes and families and for no fault of theirs they get the brunt of our frustrations sometimes.

We put up a brave front and do all we can with all our might , but we are sentient beings too…we do feel like crying, we do fall apart, we do breakdown…

Everytime I watch a video of an animal I’ve lost even more than a year ago, i sob – and that is because I haven’t really got the time to grieve for that poor soul…i have no closure because another animal needed me soon enough..

Most of us have chosen this as our life’s calling..yes it’s a choice we have made for ourselves, no one has forced us into it, but please be kind and know that we are doing the best we can.

So please please know and believe that-
No matter how long we get to love them, it’s never enough..and you may never understand and that’s okay…
All we ask kind ❤️🙏
