  1. @Preety_India As soon as you exit this website, the words you read on this forum will be out of sight. When they leave your sight, they may linger as thoughts. When they leave your thoughts...peace.
  2. @Preety_India I have been observing this forum for years as a fly on the wall, yet I've avoided getting too involved & only posted a few times for the fear of exactly what you are going through now. Sometimes, we get more involved than we expected to and the next thing we know we've become emotionally attached to the conflicts that come with online communities, especially when they offend us. Maybe...it's as if we've identified with the community too much & in return we let some people hurt us. It's okay to step away. Let go...
  3. Yeah once you start eating consciously for a while, cravings for junk food go away. If/when you do have a cheat meal, chances are you won't enjoy it as much. I ate junk food all the time in my younger days. Can't stand it now!
  4. I've heard that black coffee is good for the liver. Who knows

  6. Hi Emne. I am so very for your loss. I had to let my dog go three months ago and it was the most painful experience of my life. Dogs are incredible beings. They provide us with unconditional love and companionship, and can be great spiritual teachers. You must allow yourself to feel every bit of pain and sadness that comes your way. Do not suppress ANYTHING. If you find yourself crying uncontrollably for hours, days, weeks, then let it be so. Grief is the purest form of love you will ever experience. Grief is the reflection of how much love you had/have for your beloved dog. I still miss my dog so much. I have dreams about him and I think about him a lot (mind you it has been three months already) but this is all part of the grieving process. It could take years until you fully recover from the pain, but the key is to accept what has happened completely and allow yourself to mourn as much as you can. Your mind will play tricks with you during the grieving process. You might find yourself feeling happy one moment, then you will fall back into the sadness. This is normal. Your emotions will most likely be shaky but again, you must allow it. Some people replace their dogs quickly. I do not recommend this because this only serves to surpress the sadness deeper into the subconscious and allowing a distraction to serve as a “bandage” over the pain. If you want to find a new companion, I recommend waiting for a couple months at least (or however long it takes you to recover). I have not done this yet (I plan to), but I heard that fostering dogs is very helpful in the grieving process because you are honoring your dogs love by helping other dogs get out of the shelters and find new homes. You can also write letters to your pup. This helped me a lot with my loss. As a part of allowing yourself to feel the pain, you must find a way to channel the pain outward in a constructive manner. Writing letters is an excellent way of doing this. Write down your favorite memories, all of your regrets, EVERYTHING you feel. Your dog loved you very much and I am sure you gave her the best life she could ever ask for. Her love will always be with you. That is the amazing gift that dogs leave us with. Their LOVE! It is the greatest gift one could ever give and receive. Honor their love by being more loving to others! Again, I’m really sorry for your loss. I hope you feel better soon!
