Aren’t dogs simply the most loving amazing creatures given to earth? So long as they’re raised right!
Like humans, hate and violence is taught. It’s learned behaviour. Every person, and every animal, I believe in my heart, are not innately evil. Every living thing is born without hate.
People teach it. And it’s passed down from generation to generation.
Granted, there are people who have exceptional resilience. The ones who turn out good against all odds. I believe I am one of those people.
I didn’t have the easiest childhood. I didn’t have the hardest either, but because of my childhood and my upbringing, I chose a different path.
I chose to be kind to my children. I chose not to use violence. I did lose my way a few times when the boys were small, it certainly wasn’t easy raising 5 boys so close in age. But I got help. And I’m a better person and a better parent for it.
It’s up to each and every one of us to do the right thing. Things won’t change in the world without everyone doing their bit.
But with a little love and kindness in our hearts, and a smile for others everyday, we can change the world.
If you don’t know it already, hopefully the board game we’re playing so far this year, has taught you that life is short. So live it. But live it well. Be kind.
Be kind to yourself, be kind to others, be kind to animals. Don’t teach hate or prejudice, or negativity. Do what’s right.
