There has to be a word for forgiving but not forgetting. You forgive for yourself but remain cautious because you know what they are capable of.
There has to be a word for that rare chance where you say the right thing during a difficult time. L’esprit de l’escalier is missing the opportunity to say the perfect thing and the exact opposite of this word.
There has to be a word for knowing when to overcompensate for someone you’re in a relationship with (whether it is familial, platonic or romantic). This does not mean that you’re taken advantage of. It’s just that there are days where someone is only 40% in it, so you give 60% to make it complete. And if situations were reversed, they do the same for you.
There has to be a word that is dedicated entirely to a dog’s intuition in knowing when they need you to rub their belly. And in the process, make you feel like everything will eventually fall into place.

Not sure of that word for the dog knowing the belly rub deal but darn are they good at it Teesh 😉 And goodness they let you know all will be OK. Cool blog!
They sure are, Ryan. Thanks for dropping by! 🙂
Hehe… Those would be the words I’d give for all your situations.
Haha thanks Heide! 🙂
I think the perfect words for everything is “the beauty of life”
Hey Cristina. It really is, isn’t it? 🙂
I love how all of these definitions made me think carefully about what words I would associate with them. Forgiving but not forgetting is progress. You’re trying to move on but at the same time, not make the same mistakes.
I agree with Heide that the rare chance of saying the right thing is luck. I find myself having a hard time finding that right word for a given situation.
Knowing when to overcompensate is care. You care for them enough that you put out the extra energy when needed.
I would call the last one magic because dogs (and other pets) can turn your mood to the right side!
PETS ARE MAGIC IN GENERAL ❤
