Or anyone like me...
Please... live at least one day in my shoes.
Clean the number of kennels I've got.
Care for the number of dogs that I've saved.
Apologize to those broken-hearted dogs in your care... for things you didn't do...
Answer one of the calls that I get.
Check one of my emails.
Read the hateful comments I see... about me... from the ignorant people... who have never been "me" ... but assume they know more about "being me" ... than I do.
Feel the despair I feel... when I'm forced to say "No."
Feel the anxiety I feel... when I'm forced to say "Yes."
Feel the hopelessness I feel... when I'm forced to say: "I have nothing left to give."
And then... if you're me...
When you have nothing left to give...
Give up yourself.
Give up your life.
Give up everything in your world... for others.
And when you struggle... beg for the help you need.
Hope that it will arrive...
Know... that it probably won't...
Hope that you're wrong.
Pray that you're wrong.
Know... that you're probably right.
Because...in truth... you're all you've got.
You're all they've got.
No one else... signed up to be you.
Only you did.
Be proud... of you.
If someone hates you...
For being you...
They have nothing better to do.
Because they aren't you.
Get. A. Life.
No matter what you do... others will judge you.
Others will criticize you.
Others will hate you.
|Walking the Lucky Dogs|
In their attempts to find your faults... they simply highlight their own.
They only wish they could do... what you do.
And yet... they'll never be you.
Only you can do that.
YOU manage to change the world... every single day.
And it kills them.
While they suck at being them...
Do. What. You. Do.
That's all you gotta do.
