    Wow, the characteristics and qualities of a deer remind me of myself in a big way. I do have the tendency to be very gentle and when I am not I go back and take a look of what I just did and think of what I could have done better. I am also very cautious. One step outside and I am on alert because I live in such a territory where the homeless and drunk live, because I own a store. The deer is such a graceful gentle creature. I am very proud to say that within lies the spirit of a deer.

      Why hate a deer when you can like it? Put in every perspective of different people and then may you find what lies within. For you though it seems you would like to hate on the deer which is hating on people who got the spirit of the deer. I'd love to find the best in people so I let this slide past me. But for you I am worried about.

      Find yourself my friend. Maybe you didn't align so well the deer. Try answering the questions again. Breathe, take your time and whatever you put out in the world expect it back so be careful what you put out. Stay positive.
