Six funny reasons why pets are the best therapist/shrink
Ever had a bad day and felt like the whole world is against you, the coffee spilled on your shirt, or maybe you got stuck in traffic for hours. Well, once you walk right through the door, there is almost a viable chance your pet would come up to you with a furry hug. Yes, just the right thing you needed to make you feel a little bit better. You may be surprised to know that your pets are certified therapists and shrinks that could help you feel better. Here are a few reasons why your pet is the best therapist.
Ever had a long talk with your pets about trouble in your mind? I'm very sure that they listened to every single bit of your whining and crying all through that moment. They have been inbuilt with a listening ear and not-so-waging tongues, so you can be sure they don't scold you for your bad behavior.
They don't charge per hour
The fact that you have to pay a whole lot of money on the hour just to sit in your "human" therapist office without achieving anything for that day is enough reason to consult your pet-herapist. They charge you on the meal and some fun time.
Imagine having mental stress from work and hours spent in traffic, and then you still have to get downtown to meet up with your shrink, I'd say you'd probably want to miss a couple of meetings or so. Having your pets as your therapist would give you the ability to have your therapist at any time in the comfort of your living room while making a sandwich.
Your thera-pets would never despise you no matter how horrible the decisions you make, except maybe your pet is a cat, those guys would just you to moon and back, and that's some nuggets of experience. Your pets would never judge you even though they warned you about the terrible ex or how long you spent at that toxic job.
Free Furry hugs
When last did your human therapist hug you when you broke down while talking about the deepest pain in your hearts? Never right?. That's what this beautiful and specially trained shrinks and therapist offer, a furry hugs, and some closure. I bet you do not get that at the therapist's office.
Games and fun inclusive
Sometimes, what may be putting you down, might just be an overload of work and built up stress. This is probably the time you need to unwind and have some sunshine induced fun to lift your spirit. These excellent therapists are known to play fetch or chase the laser at the detriment of their own silliness. They even demean themselves just to make you catch a laugh; a human therapist doesn't do that. Well, if you find a human certified therapist who offers these kinds of services, then you had better run with your money.
To sum up, everything that has been stated, pets are made to make life a little bit easier for us emotionally, that's if they aren't cats that leave you in your moment of emotional breakdown. They are good company during trying times and can help lift your spirits. But if you need to let a lot of things go, then you should see a certified professional therapist.
Oh wait, one last tip, your thera-pets also offer couples counseling. Have a great day!
