My home is menagerie of critters, one of which is a hamster. The other night, I truly for the first time watched the little guy and realized that we
have a lot in common.
Hear me out ...
He is in a big cage. He gets up, eats and gets a drink, then its off to the big wheel, where he runs and runs and runs and never really gets anywhere,
at the end of the day all he gets is tired. Then, he repeats.
He relies on me to feed and take care of his needs, sort of like I do my employer. He relies on me for affection, like I do my spouse. The
comparison may not set well with some psychologically, but think about it how true it is! Do any of you feel like a hamster in a big cage with a
wheel, running for your life only to find that you haven't gone anywhere!
I wonder if he ever longs for freedom like I do!
