Humans communicate so much through the words they use. We use Twitter, Facebook updates, text messages, blog posts, speech.
There is so much effort poured into the words we say. Sadly, at one point or another, words will fail you. Situations will arise where words are meaningless.
I found this to be true during and after my wife and I had to make the difficult choice to put our dog down. People tried to comfort us with their words.
You’ll feel better over time
You made the right choice
You did what needed to be done
You loved him and he loved you
You know, all of those words were true. Things have gotten better. We believe we made the right choice. We believe we did what had to be done. And we sure did love him.
