Hello Swan, thank
you for replying and for your encouragement.
I live with my mother and nan. We’ve had an especially difficult couple of years with multiple bad
things happening, one of which being my mother’s breast cancer diagnosis (she’s
doing well now).
I feel the hardships have shown us that we will always have each other’s back.
I’ve been making an effort to exit my comfort zone at least once every day if I
can. I’m trying to exercise my daring, I guess. It’s only small things at
the moment, like answering the door for a delivery. I don’t want to push myself
too much as past experiences have taught me that getting a bit too ambitious can
badly impact my emotional state.
My cat is wonderful and I feel incredibly lucky to have him. He’s a Devon Rex
and will be 5 years old in September. He’s a constant companion for me. He sits
with me all day, every day and follows me around the house when I have to do
something. He gets in the way a lot and can be a little brat, but you can’t
help but forgive him quickly. He’s a fairly vocal cat and meows often. His
favourite toy is a pipe cleaner attached to an elastic string on a stick that I
have to run around with for him to chase.
Thank you for the thread suggestion. I will definitely check it out!
