  1. It’s actually true and heart-rending at the same time, that people are so busy with their own lives that they don’t want to listen, thereby this would make non-humans e.g. animals and objects better listeners.

    • The story reminds me of the famous proverb in English that reads: “Misery loves company”. This is characteristic of all humans to share grief, misery, and sorrow, and at the same time, express sympathy and empathy, in return.
      However, the problem with Iona was that he forgot about his social caste as a working class. This is typically the plague that some extroverted people might deal with in the face of problems. They might think everybody would be there to sympathize with them. This misconduct only adds insult to injury.
