This is a terrible feeling of desperation and grief.
I picture an elderly lady in an old age home, forgotten by her children and friends. Alone she sits, for days on end, hoping that her child will visit.
They never do.
I picture a child reaching for a mommy too busy to share a hug and a laugh with him.
I picture an animal, chained up with no food. A guard animal, not a pet and never loved.
An unanswered phone, a forgotten letter, an ignored knock on the door.
Are you guilty of this? Are you guilty of ignoring your elderly parents, children and animals?
Or do you feel like this, unloved, unwanted and forgotten?
And which is worse?
By the way, you can’t forget me. I won’t allow it, I will never be unloved, ignored or forgotten. If I have these feelings, I reach out to others. There are always people who need someone.
If I smile at someone, they smile back. What is better than that? Absolutely nothing.
