A couple of days ago I had some visits and had to hide all my stuff. The next day as I was getting ready to go to work all my stuff was still hidden but I remembered how my teddy bear was kind crammed and under some clothes, so I took him out, and as I did that I also got an urge to hug him and I did.
I felt really good and it got me thinking how initially I saw it as just a teddy bear but now it seems I'm actually developing a serious affection for this inanimate object, I was really surprised because I didn't think I would start to get attached to my teddy bear and see him as more than just a soft object. But I do, and it's great actually.
I went looking around the internet and apparently stuffed animals are not only important for babies and toddlers emotional development but can also provide emotional comfort and healing on older children and adults which makes sense.
Do you any similar stories or thoughts you would like to share? Any stuffed animals you have and like to cuddle with?
