Adopting a pet comes with many responsibilities and if you cannot fulfill those responsibilities, better not get a pet.
Have you ever had a friend who gets bored easily? You know, the kind of person who can’t stick to one thing for very long? Everyone has that kind of person in their lives. A Redditor shared with the Reddit community that she fosters animals and she is a kind of a person who gets bored easily and this is the reason why she does not have a permanent pet or kids. Her parents often shame her for not wanting kids. Well, the Redditor has been living with her boyfriend for a while. OP had a temporary dog at home but OP’s boyfriend and his kid developed an attachment with the dog. OP’s boyfriend told them that they should adopt this dog but OP refused to adopt this because she thinks that he will get bored too and she would be the one taking care of the dog.
OP’s family and friends think that she is being selfish but OP thinks that it is her home and she has the right to decide what she wants in her home. Scroll down to have a look at the complete story.
This lady refused to adopt a dog that her partner liked:
OP only has one pet i.e. her rabbit, Paddy. She gets bored easily, this is why she can’t be a parent.
OP gets bored of pets this is why she has no interest in having a full-time pet:
OP’s parents have tried to guilt OP into having children and her friends think that she is being selfish for not wanting a pet/child.
OP and her boyfriend got a dog temporarily and OP’s boyfriend bonded with the dog and wanted to adopt him.
OP’s boyfriend thinks that she is TAH and that she should seek help and a therapist diagnosed OP with ADHD.
OP thinks that it is her choice because it is her home:
Some people sympathize with the Redditor, saying that they were honest from the beginning about their intentions and shouldn’t be forced to keep the dog if they don’t want to. Others say that the Redditor is being selfish and cruel to both the dog and their partner, and that they should take responsibility for their actions and keep the dog.
It is important to be honest about your limitations and not make promises you can’t keep. On the other hand, when you adopt a pet, you’re taking on a responsibility to care for that animal for its entire life. It’s not something to be taken lightly.
They should give the help the original poster needs:
