This episode really makes me sound weird. What I'm getting at is how things make you feel.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou
My second marriage wasn't always bad. My wife and I had a running gag of dragging a stuffed bear with us to events. It was funny. He was behind the speaker at our marriage.
My ex-wife named him Roy.
I use to give Roy a voice and make him say terribly dark things that make it hilarious coming out of a cuddly bear.
When we divorced, she kept Roy, and I kept another bear that I had purchased to give to her (but later decided not to - mature I know...)
I decided to buy my own Roy. It turns out that was harder to do than originally planned.
How do you make people feel?
If a stuffed toy can bring happiness, can you imagine how you can make a person feel?
One last thing, I know this makes me sound like COVID has cracked my sanity. I'm fine. I know this is weird.
