Last year we lost our dog of 14 years.  Her name was Delilah.
She was a free spirit who wandered the neighborhood to spite the local lease laws. Some who had pet doors were blessed with visits from this dog, her sweet nature always winning humans to her affections. I never could figure out how she always knew when I was troubled and my ex was clueless. Perhaps it is that men are so egocentric that only the most direct approach to a situation would bring them to enlightenment if you were lucky. Maybe it is my disposition towards passivity that bears a sign on my forehead, “dummy here take full advantage” Now my newly acquired sense of assertion is new to those in my life, they balk when I do not roll over, how dare I try to be me or live my life!
One of the good things of learning self esteem is learning to let go of hurt of the past and living in the moment. Dogs do this, they live in the moment. They accept you unconditionally. Now how marvelous is this? For now I have given up on men and my dog Delilah has gone making the lonely parts of the day poignant with her absence.
I miss her so. Okay, okay, I miss the ex too but not as much.estatic

    • Vicki I was horrible about my sense of self.  I was always living my life for everyone else.  I am much better now. I look at that “other woman”  and am astounded I was so clueless for so long.  I am told I am intelligent but in retrospect I wonder.  estatic

      Lol UKGirl,  the more people I met the more common the “not missing the ex” is.happy

    • You should see the mourning period I had for loss of my pets.  My husband always worried if he needed to admit me to a psychiatric ward whenever an animal passed away in my household.

      The funny and strange thing was my grandmother passed away and I loved her more than anything else, yet I was not as depressed.  

      Weird! worried

    • Oh!  I love birds,  we have some green and blue wild parrots that fly around here.  Noisy they are,  you can always know when they are about. (I read your profile)
      A friend of mine had a cockatiel that was allowed to run loose in the house,  bossy little thing. happy
