Animals are the ghosts trapped within our prison of pain
Our days fly by quickly, and there will NEVER be an exact ‘right’ time to make changes in your life. Perhaps you are engaged in an internal struggle AT THIS VERY MOMENT, or you may be facing challenges that you have yet to recognize within yourself. It is up to you to take charge of your life and ‘catch the train’ of your own life and live a more thoughtful and compassionate life before the opportunity passes you by. You have a chance to make choices that will separate you from those who thoughtlessly mistreat animals.
Tanja Andersen, the founder of Serve Global Wildlife, has sometimes ‘missed her own train’. Her personal pain left her powerless to help those she loved, her pets and her family. She saw cruelty to animals happening right in front of her, and still made bad choices. Why did she not slam her fist down and say, “Stop!”? The answer is simply that Tanja’s life has not been easy, she has often felt like a ghost in her own life, stuck inside her own pain. She felt a sense of safety inside that pain and had a lot of difficulty finding herself.
