Do you like animals better than people?

Long ago I went to a volunteer orientation and the instructor started by asking “How many of you like animals better than people?” First a few people raised their hands shyly. Soon, everybody had their hands up and we were laughing. “Right!” she said, “So just keep in mind that you’re working with people who don’t like you either. You can get your feelings hurt and walk away, but the animals can’t.” That has carried me through a lot of frustrations.
