Trying to Be a Rock For Others

I am really more sensitive than I let on.  At least I believe I show a strong front...

When people are upset about matters of the heart, I understand their pain.  I let them cry on my shoulder and then I offer a logical solution to their problem.  (I tend to be logical rather than emotional in my thinking.) I just want to take them in my arms and hug their pain away.

I still cry when I watch Disney movies - Bambi, The Lion King...

I get upset when people complain about little things.  (When someone called her mother horrible names because they didn't receive a laptop amongst all their other birthday gifts.)  I wanted to say - "Hey!  You have food, shelter, clothes, and hot water!  You have family, love and peace!  You're so rich!  You have no idea how good you have it!  You wouldn't like your daughter doing the same to you, would you?  Be thankful!" I don't show my frustration, but I state how I feel in a kind and calm manner.

I am hurt at how cold and unloving the general public can be.  Why can people be so selfish and not care about their fellow men / women?  The most love I have been shown was at a church in Abbotsford, and with a company I used to work for.  They are truly caring and loving people.  What ever happened to the golden rule?  You know: "Do unto others?"  At least go by: You catch more flies with honey than you do vinegar?

Windows are the eye to the soul.  I have looked into peoples eyes and known that they are dead.  Their hearts were hardened, and they lost their soul.  I NEVER want to grow cold and have my heart hardened!

Faith, peace, love and kindness.. :-)

To be fair,Mizz,people who are good to animals are usually good to people too. Cruelty to animals in childhood is an indicator of lack of empathy and a key warning signal for potential serial killers at the extreme. Yes,there are "cat ladies" and so on but (broadly) good people are good and mean people are mean.

Thanks for this post -- it is truly amazing. I work in a big city,and you can't imagine how mean people are to others. <br />
And these same people?? Treat animals like they are human.<br />
I'n not against animals, but I think humans need to have a little more compassion for man kind.
