Let Others Know How You Feel
With Lucky, you always know where she stands. Normally, her tail is up and all is well. Sometimes, her tail is at half-mast, indicating that she’s somewhere on the spectrum between cautiously optimistic and on alert. Occasionally, her tail is tucked firmly between her back legs, and we know she’s either afraid, sad or ill. Compare Lucky’s willingness to share her feelings with the people in our lives who mask their emotions. Some act as if everything’s fine when really it’s anything but, eventually sinking into depression or exploding with the truth. Others play the victim, taking unfair advantage of our sympathy for personal gain. Lucky’s way is better, giving others—not to mention her tail—a fair shake.
