There was a time when I used to be terribly scared of dogs. And I was too scared to care about them as well!
Last night as I sat with Droopy comforting her and tucking her in as she was trembling due to the loud noises from crackers, I thought of how I wouldn’t have dreamt of ever comforting a dog a couple of years ago. In fact I needed comforting around them! 😂
I used to be so scared of dogs that I would freeze or try to escape, always failing badly with people around me having a good time at my expense 😄
But then a couple of years back we started feeding a street dog. She would follow me to the shop and never barked at me. I started doing EFT in her presence – tapping on all the aspects of the fear gradually neutralized it. I could sit with her without too much fear. Over the years with tapping and using a simple exposure therapy approach on myself, I have drastically reduced the fear. 😎 So much so that we took care of nearly 10-12 puppies in the last 4 years and got them all adopted.
