I am 31, and I have only been to three funerals in my whole life. The first funeral that I went to was my grandmother’s, in 2009. I was 23, almost 24. The second was my mother’s, which was in 2010, and I was barely 25. And the third was my mom’s best friend’s son, Mark’s, which was in 2014.
I felt like I went to my fourth one tonight.
As you know, I’m a furry. I love all things furry (well, clean things). I am proud to identify with myself and who I want to be. I love it – I’ve never really been able to identify more clearly. So it’s really not surprising that I had been totally pumped for Zootopia for months – and here’s my review.
Spoilers. So many spoilers. If you haven’t seen it yet, go away.
Finally, we’re on the last bit of this series. I’ll admit, this was an idea I had for awhile, but I really struggled with writing it as I went. Admittedly, my psychology memory just isn’t the way that it used to be. Because of that, there may be some things that I totally and completely missed, and for that, I apologize.
I’m putting these last two together because they totally go together, especially when you’re looking at the bigger picture of faith. These two literally come one after the other.
Yes, I know, I put another post up really fast. That’s what happens when you write a series and then life happens in between and you can’t really help but tell the whole world around it. Part 6 is out later this week.
Today is one of those days where the weight of just how amazing my life is has overwhelmed me. I just cannot believe how much better my life has gotten and just how strong I am in my faith at this point in my life…
This is one of the more abstract, but still important, parts of our pyramid. Esteem is one of those really abstract things (and, as you can see, as we go up the pyramid, the ideas that are talked about here are a lot more abstract than they had been before).
But let me tell you, from my own experience, if you don’t have esteem before you really start getting into your faith, no matter what it is – it can end up hurting you a lot.
