There is nothing on this planet like the unconditional love of an animal. The positive effects that animals have on most people are beyond words. They offer us moral support and a calming welcome when life can be difficult or uncomfortable. Always by our side, his affection transcends any limit.
How can such powerful love affect us? Why do some of them show such limitless affection? Are all animals capable of love? And what makes it so unique to us humans?
Well, first hand, an animal can provide unconditional love, hugs, and kisses to many people who have never received affection throughout their lives. Animals even help you live longer. His life can heal yours. And there is evidence of this statement worldwide. I am not surprised that a scientific study has shown what many have known from the beginning: animals are capable of great acts of love.
And all of us had the experience of the emotional, sentimental and almost gravitational pull of an animal’s touch. It’s an amazing feeling to play with a dog, snuggle with a cat, ride a horse, or socialize with a bird. Even watching a video about a wild animal lifting its young from a difficult situation moves us. So animals have extraordinary healing power that goes beyond what we can imagine.
Let’s take more care
Most of you know the love that an animal can have. You know the feeling. It’s the touch of a wet nose rubbing your face or the sound of a worried moan when you’re sad. Or it is also the jump in your laps or absolute happiness when they see you. But it is even deeper when you look into his wide and compassionate eyes. Then they seem to understand you on the deepest level.
So if you are an animal lover, you already know it is true. Animals are capable of deep and unconditional love that goes far beyond what you and I can feel. However, there is a cliche related to animals waiting to be adopted in shelters around the world. It seems to many of you that you believe that an animal in a shelter is there only because it is undesirable or broken in some way.
But nothing is further from the truth. It is a fact that only five out of ten animals in the shelters never get out alive. In my life, I saw animals that were so hungry, so thin, so abused, so neglected. Those are the ones who have seen the worst of humanity. And yet, somehow, they find the strength to live; not only to live but to forgive, trust and give unconditional love once again.
The unconditional love of an animal
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress is judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Some scientific studies show that animals feel love in the same way as people; through a chemical process. When you hold an animal, like your pet, your cat, dog, horse and many other creatures of the animal kingdom, something magical happens. Release the same hormones that you do when you are in love.
As a result, there really is no love like the unconditional love of an animal. An innocent creature, who is not of the same species, decides to snuggle with you when you feel sad or play with you when you are in a bad mood. And sometimes they even give their own lives to protect you. They don’t have to, but they still do. Animals know that you are unique to them and very often you are their entire world. Always be nice!
The magic of loving an animal
I love all animals. They are beautiful creatures that deserve their place in this world. And I realized that loving an animal changes a person’s life and mine. Whether it’s an army, service, therapy, farm, wild animal, or just your pet, your love for them is unique. But the extraordinary love you receive is one of the purest feelings on this planet.
As a child, he was one of those children who brought abandoned, wounded, or lost animals from the street. I would go home with them. My mother’s response was often no. Then, being a rebellious child, I would take them to our horse stable anyway. And then take care of them there until they recover. However, as I got older, the more I began to realize the cruelty and abuse that the animals were enduring, and it hurt.
Of course, I wanted to do my part to help these poor innocent souls. So I started working with them before and after school, and also during the summer. But throughout my life, I moved from side to side. I worked as a zookeeper for big cats in Colorado. And then I got a job as an assistant surgeon for a vet. But it wasn’t for me. Now his unconditional love took over again, and I’ve come back
And what happens when your cat lazily relaxes in a sunny spot around the house, makes eye contact with you across the room, and then blinks softly? In the cat’s body language, a slow, deliberate blink means an expression of complete trust, vulnerability, and friendship. Otters hold hands while sleeping and resting to prevent clans from losing each other. Rats are known to release other rats from their cages.
Elephants also possess unconditional love. They are emotional creatures and show compelling acts of affection when, for example, they cry for a lost loved one. Some even die of broken hearts after the death of another. These gentle souls stand on the remains, crying for several minutes to numerous days. They will also bury the bodies under the leaves. And those are not the only animals that show incredible feelings and intelligence.
The human and animal worlds
The separation between the human and animal worlds is not as extensive as one might think. Animals have so much wisdom and power. And when we interact with them, they often ease our pain and the problems we feel are too overwhelming.
Therefore, the most magical aspect of their human-animal connection is this unspoken language that you share with them. Build confidence and affection that never wavers or fades. Studies show that petting and spending time with an animal inevitably decreases the stress levels that go through its body.
So, the more affection, care and attention you give to an animal or pet, the more response you receive from a lot of devotion. As a result, there is nothing to match the unconditional love of an animal. And I think we have a lot to learn from them.
It’s unconditional love
Seriously, who else will accept you as you are? Who else will welcome you, regardless of your circumstances? Where will you be greeted with such enthusiasm, the moment you walk through the door?
You and I can always do our best to give that kind of love to our partners, friends and family, but with little success. In this world, no one else can leave everything in place and fill it with adoration and adoration like an animal does. They are truly special angels that we must appreciate.
“Until you have loved an animal, a part of your soul remains awake.” – Anatole France
Since they give us unconditional love until the day of their death and even afterward, think about petting, talking and spoiling animals with adoration as much as you can. Tell them how much you love them. Remember that their unreserved affection for you is a special bond of nature, even if they are soulmates of a different kind!
