Miley Cyrus is having a bad day. The 21-year-old has been inconsolable over the death of her dog Floyd. Back in April she sang to a replica of Floyd at her concert, which was a little odd, but we all grieve in different ways.
For those of us who have pets, we know how they are just like our babies -- our fur babies -- and losing a pet is a terrible, heartbreaking experience to go through. Miley is still having a rough time and she took to twitter to share her feelings on how she feels she failed to protect him as a mother, and she wants everyone's heart to break like her heart is breaking.
Sad pupils are beautiful too…humans. We Looooove to feel sorry for ourselves don't we…i've read we are one of the only species (among dolphins, pigs, some primates) that have sex for pleasure, but I would bet we are the ONLY creatures that put ourselves thru pain for please.
How many times have you laid in bed and cried when the sun is out shining. Your loved ones are out laughing, and there are thousands of brilliant books to be read…but CHOOSE to lay in a bed and indulge yourself in sadness. Today I am choosing to be that selfish human. There's nothing I want more than to lay and drown this pillow in my tears & think about all my shoulda, coulda, wouldas.
I keep asking why would the world take my sweet boy from me? I'm just a baby myself…I depend on my mother still. She is the one at the end of the day I want to hold me when I'm sad, scared, lonely. Her one job in this world is to eel me out of harms way...I was Floyd's mommy. I don't know when the regret and the guilt will fade. I don't know if it ever will.
I feel like I let my boy down. My job was to protect him and I'm not a person that takes failure lightly...Today is one of those days where I can't open the curtains to see the sun…open the windows to hear the world going on around me because to be honest I hate the fact that the world's still spinning. I want it to stop…I want everyone's heart to break the way my heart is breaking.
No matter how much I cry or beg of 'god' to wake me up from this nightmare, it is what it is (at least that's what everyone keeps reminding me). There's no waking up from reality so today I am being a helplessly hopeless human & I'm ok with that.
Oh, Miley. This is heartbreaking. She posted this along with this photo and the caption #sadselfies. Losing a pet isn't something you get over easily -- in fact, you never get over it. But eventually the painful sadness softens a little and you focus on the happy memories.
Can you relate to Miley's sadness? Have you lost a pet?
