Whereas most humans are always like... "ew get away from me me you gross human who is obviously in deep emotional pain/being abused at work/school/home! I don't want to talk to you or hug you or hear your problems!"
Humans are grossed out by other humans.
Humans are endlessly selfish in many ways.
It causes more pain and heartbreak.
I'm not damning the human race or giving way to to misanthropy. I'm not an animal loving misanthropist. Far from it. Nor am I shaming those who shun, reject and isolate those seeking comfort. There are reasons why such actions happen.
I simply being thankful for animals existing... pets actually. Cats. dogs, small animals, farm animals, birds... and others. In my case it was cats and rats. Something about an animal's love, acceptance and their touch that heals... it's indescribable.
