A story of loss

This is a story that was shared with me earlier today:
Last week I came home to my house on fire. I lost everything, and all five of my dogs died. I wanted to end everything that night. Everything I worked for in my life gone. My best friends, gone. My life revolved around my dogs, their care, their shows, everything was about them. 

The news story was titled “Residents OK, but 5 dogs died in house fire.”
I didn’t want to be okay. I wanted to go up with them. 

I went to counseling the next day, I called it in as an emergency. I know in the end it will be okay, but the sadness is hitting me tonight. I miss my life. 



Fortunately, insurance were bought for the house so the loss of property can be claimed. However, the loss of the friends is literally gone.
It’s a truly sad story right? Just sharing this to let it serve as a reminder-
We can lose something / someone just like that without any warning. Cherish your love ones and what you have 🙂
Hope you’re doing good! Do you have anything you’d like to share? Feel free to leave them in the comments if you do! If not, talk to you again 😉
Your pal,
Benjamin

    1. ‘Tis true 😦

      I remember getting separated from one of my pet dog when I was a kid, had to give him away cause we were moving.

      It was horrible to know that I won’t be seeing him again cause my parents gave him away to a shop. This is why I love my current doggo so much too, even though he can be a nuisance at times lol. Ahhh that cute little bugger.

      Indeed, cherish the people who are still with us- and that also means I do cherish your friendship and you writing this comment for me too :3

      How’ve you been btw Kat?! XD

      2. Indeed! It’s like a pandora box of sorts eh? You’ll never know what you’re gonna get but good thing is, something good might come out of it- awesome 🙂

        I’m alright, been focussing a lot on building my YouTube Channel XD

        Me doggo is called Afro. That little bugger made me drop my phone and chipped the screen a few days ago. He ran out of the house so I had to chase after him before he he met with any traffic. Fortunately the road was empty at the time lol.

        Was mad at him for awhile but I’m back to loving him now hahaha.

        What about yourself? Feel free to respond on FB 😉
