Running an Animal Shelter
"It must be so hard for you," that's the phrase I hear the most. It is paired with "to see them get adopted and move on" Or "to review all these animals and see them when they are sick" most often, but once I hear the first part I am already detached from the conversation. I have already removed myself from the back and forth pleasantries and am arguing whether I want to open up about what is genuinely hard for me to do or whether I will flash you a smile and brush of the comment entirely with my usual "No, not really." What I want to truly say, is so much more. Buy, I never find the right way to say it.
