 About my fears, well I think it was obvious to some people that I had an extreme dislike of birds. Then I met this wonderful cockatoo named, Roxy. I've seen her many times before and have always felt too uncomfortable to hold her. I decided, while I was at the Pet store buying things for my cat that I would go and at least talk to Roxy. I walked into her room, and she was out sitting on top of her cage as she always does. She was particularly quiet, and I finally brought up the courage to pet her. As I reached out she very suddenly jumped onto my hand, I was surprised how light she was for a large bird. I also didn't move, for fear she would bite me or I would hurt her. Roxy who was known to be a very unpredictable animal started to climb up my arm and to my shoulder, strategically using her feet and beak. I was petrified, I looked out the window and very calmly asked for help from people walking by. I suppose they were to distracted by their own errands to notice I was terrified. I tried hard not to show it around Roxy, afraid that she would become as tense as I was. Roxy decided it would be nice to pull my hair out of it's braid, and then she leaned down right next to my ear and in the creepiest voice said, "Hi Roxy". It frightened me for a slight second, then I realized what she said and in no time I relaxed and started to pet her in all her favorite spots. "Hi Roxy" is her friendly way of greeting you. It wasn't unusual for the times before that where she would greet guests with a "Hi Roxy". She also liked to look in her mirror and say, "Pretty girl". I enjoyed my time with Roxy, and soon the manager came in and rescued me from my friendly captor. She told me the door to Roxy's room was supposed to be locked, since she has been attacking customers for no apparent reason. She was very surprised that Roxy didn't hurt me at all. Perhaps it's because we already knew each other or that we have a lot in common. Roxy is in the pet store, because her previous owner failed to meet her needs. Roxy needed a quiet environment, a place of strict schedule and routine. She suffered horrible anxiety, likewise with myself I can only work or relax in the same environment. I've decided, that when I have moved out on my own in a quiet place, and once I'm sure dear Ravioli (my cat) won't attack her; if Roxie is still up for adoption I will take her home. Roxie has done me a huge favor, by forcefully confronting my fear, and now I know not to judge or be weary of anything, or anyone simply because I am afraid. Courage is not doing something without fear. Courage is living past the fear for something more important.
