I want to express my condolences to you, for the loss of your best friend Rupert, a best friend who has been by your side for 14 years. May his memory be a treasure for you, a treasure of peace and comfort that will continue to be by your side for many years to come.
I am deeply moved by your message. When I first joined this community you were my first interaction and helped calm my nerves. Thank you for your advice back then and for reaching out to offer condolences now. Rupert was a big part of my journey and he is dearly missed. I hope you are well and once again I express my gratitude for following my journey and expressing your sympathy. God Bless.
You are welcome, and thank you for your appreciation, and for wishing me well. Regarding my previous advice to you, on this thread- I think that you needed more empathy at the time than what I expressed. When we are hurting emotionally or when we are anxious, the only thing we urgently need is empathy.
You didn’t ask me for any advice yesterday, and you probably don’t need it, but it can’t hurt to express it anyway: when you hurt next, when you get anxious next, view yourself kindly, as a person worthy of empathy, as a person that needs your own gentleness and kindness.
