I am grateful that my dogs still love me unconditionally, despite the times I am almost catatonic in my depression, unable to get up off the couch, unable to get dressed and go outside and walk them properly, or give them the love and attention they deserve.  But they are always there waiting for me to come out my dark moods, and are always forgiving, despite how shitty and inattentive I am when I'm at my lowest.  When I need a cuddle, they are there. I don't deserve their love.  But they love me anyway.


I feel like I really can't wait yo have one much more longer.
But not in my current place anyway... And I wouldn't be able to take care of them the way they deserve I am sure

I'm grateful for my cat, for my WONDERFUL relationship I had with my grandmother, may she be lying in the grass with my grandfather in the place beyond. She was my best friend. I'm grateful for my awesome Mother (even though she drives me bananas sometimes, but she really does understand me). I'm thankful I got 5 good years of memories and road trips out of my ass hole father who has abandoned me (I've decided to be thankful for the happy memories I have from him instead of loath him and curse his name for all eternity lol). I'm grateful for my wonderful husband and my thoughtful mother in law. I'm grateful for Halloween and all the joy it brings me. I'm grateful for art, music and decent teeth. I'm thankful I have talents and am in a trade. I'm grateful to have a positive demeanour and for my mother always telling me "there's always a positive in a negative" which helped me get through some shitty situations. I"m thankful I grew up with plentiful christmas's and birthday parties and fireworks and holidays to the beach.

Greatly grateful for this place too.
It will sound .... Pathetic but I spend so much time working or tuning away also that my social life is ... Zero. So it sounds very and scarily nerdy but here is were I have a place to talk about other things and things I can not tell anyone.

It a sad lonely life. (。-_-。)

So yep, sorry but that nerdy asocial me like this place to feel I am still connected to some people who are not coworkers or city hall, shops or post office employees....

I'm grateful for my horse.
These days she is my best friend, my therapist and my distraction from everything that is shitty in my life.
 
When I am with her, I can forget everything else. Training her is something I'm actually good at, and it gives me an enormous sense of accomplishment. And she never judges or criticizes me.


What horse he is ???
You have a picture ???

Horse are very soft animals.
Huge and peaceful but proud.
I think they have, maybe even more than dog (?) that ability to read feelings.
Always had this impression.
Don't you ?

my sister because even if she only suspects is always supportive and present even if we live parted and far from each other. We are like twins in the movies, we always think of each other and try to be always together. We really love each other. She always tries to cheer me up.

 

my fiancè because these years at university would have probably ended really really badly and it's thank to him that I'm alive and that a decided to finish my studies after the hiatus, really supportive, super positive attitude and kind. I feel guilty about not sharing with him this part of me but he wouldn't approve it at all even if I think he suspects too.

 

my mice Mino and Pino, sadly they were two brothers but a month ago Pino died and I was really sad. Both helps me going through the day and caring about a creature helps me a lot and Mino is supersweet. Both present of my bf (I already said is supportive and kind?) .

I'm grateful to my brother, he is a massive support to me, he listens without interruption, offers sage advice when I ask, has tried numerous times and ways to help me get over this but without judgement and all this when he is taking on the majority workload of caring for my terminally ill mum.

Also my cat Marley, even on my darkest days she is just there, purring away and giving unconditional love.

She's a Haflinger. 

I don't know about reading feelings, but horses are awesome at reading body language. 

If I feel bad/frustrated/irritated one day, she's gonna pick up on it at once, and we can just give up on getting any productive training that day. So whenever I go to the stable, I have to leave those kind of emotions at the door, and consentrate on being in balance. I'm doing it for her, and it helps me.

You sound like you might ride dressage? I sold my last horse in 2009, but competed into 2nd level (we had just started 2nd level our final show season). I remember needing to "check my baggage at the barn door" or the consequence would be a tense, unhappy horse with no swing or throughness. I had a super hot TB gelding who would practice his acrobatic moves when his back got tight! 

Your mare is beautiful and I'm glad she helps you find balance. <3 Horses <3

Love this thread idea! <3

 

right now, I am grateful for a very special person in my heart. They're a bit stupid and selfish but so many years has passed, and despite their dysfunction, they have made it a point to let me know that I am very special to them. and while this person isn't exactly the person I wish they were for me, I am happy that we have finally reached a point where we are actually getting along.

 

I'm also grateful for the guy I'm seeing right now. I'm nervous it won't last and a part of me knows that I don't want it to last. I just don't want it to end messy. I just want it to be an amicable thing. I wish we were more casual but for the reasons that be, I'm more invested and so it is for now. I really needed this person right when they appeared.

 

I'm grateful for the internet. I have no idea where I would be without the support when I needed it. It's there for when I need to reach out.

I'm grateful to see people posting in this thread.

 

I know I said it before, but I'm grateful for all the lovely people here.  I'm grateful, no matter how seemingly hopeless and desperate things get, that we don't give up on each other.

 

I'm also grateful for the cherry blossoms because they're pretty.  There's a tree outside my window that's just starting to bloom.

I'm grateful for the buds setting on the trees, and the little green bits poking through the earth. I can't wait to get out in my garden again. Gardening teaches me patience. 

I'm grateful for my funny little dogs, who don't care what size I am, and lick my face even when I'm a little crazy. 

 

I'm grateful for dry shampoo. (Self-explanatory.)
