When people see a lamb frolicking in a field, they see something cute and lovely. I see what is in store for him....the terror of being taken away from his mother and smelling the blood, hearing the cries of the other lambs in the slaughterhouse, sensing what is going to happen to him.
I go for a walk in our beautiful English countryside and all I see is pain and suffering.
I have had CBT, I am taking Venlafaxine, but nothing makes me see the world through rose tinted glasses. I see the beauty, of course I do, but it does not mask what is generally hidden from us. The cruelty and suffering....not only of animals, but humans in various parts of the world.
CBT must be a saviour for a lot of people, but to me it just said "If you see something that hurts you, think of something else that makes you happy"...and that's great, but the ugliness doesn't go away because you aren't thinking about it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to bring everyone down to my miserable level !!! I just wondered if someone had something to say on the subject.
Love to you all,
