Ode To A Cat
I am never too much for him.
He doesn’t find my problems so big and uncomfortable
that he retreats because he doesn’t know what to say or do.
He doesn’t tell me to “get over it” or to “stay positive.”
He doesn’t pressure me to “stay strong”.
He doesn’t do any of that bullshit.
He just is.
He just loves.
He just stays.
I’m never too much for him and he just stays.
Often I hear people saying we need to disconnect from our phones to reconnect with nature/our soul/God/reality. I do this pretty often, for an afternoon here or a weekend there. Earlier this year I took 2 months off all social media and it was brilliant and absolutely what I needed.
But having a phone, especially one with access to social media can be really, really important for people like me.
I don’t leave the house very often. I don’t get much opportunity to socialize. I meet those needs through my mobile – through phone calls, texting, messaging apps and social media. Being able to connect with others through this magical device keeps me from feeling isolated and alone. It’s been years since I made any new friends in person, but online, through social media, I’ve made amazing new friends all over the world.
So I just wanted to throw that idea out there. It’s great to disconnect when you know it’s what you need. It’s also great to be connected when you know that’s what you need.
PS: I DREW THIS! I had so much time on my hands without a phone… 😂😂😂
