Relationships are strange.
We are kind to strangers and yell at our close ones. We can be courteous and nice with clients, anticipating their needs… and deaf and blind to the needs of our neighbors.
Someone may say that’s the problem of man’s egoism and search for profit in every interaction. But I can’t agree, because there’s one great exception. Cats.
We love cats unconditionally and sometimes with a greater tolerance and respect than of a mother to her own child. Cats are the perfect example of a person taking things as they are. There’s true wisdom in the way we treat and appreciate our cats.
Some people even consider their pet a real person, they imagine cat’s feelings and talk to them… May be it is time to turn it around and imagine that all people (including yourself) are also like cats and treat them accordingly?
