The Fight Goes On

I have to say that I've certainly experienced a roller coaster of emotions these past few days. From the grief of losing my job to the frustration and sheer anger with a person I thought of as a friend, through to the disappointment at finding myself in the same boat I tried for so hard and for so long to get out of.


If truth be known I think I'm feeling more stressed now than I did during my final two months. The knock-backs have continued with this certain person seemingly trying to wash their hands of the past eleven years of their lives.

But what has kept me going is YOU, the people who have shown me tremendous support over the past few days. From my brothers to the people I've worked with over the past two years to the customers who became friends, to the people I knew years before I ever stepped foot in that pet shop, you've all shown me a great deal of kindness, and for that I will be forever grateful.

I've lost a lot in the past few weeks, but I haven't lost my pride and dignity, and even though I've considered throwing in the towel quite a few times over the past few days the fight will go on.
