Too many choices are scary. Not enough information to make those choices are even worse.
Who here has overthought a new relationship?🙋🏻♀️
Maybe one day something feels off, you read a message that makes you think something is wrong and you get it into your head that they’re going to break up with you.
You have all of this anxiety and panic because you don’t know if it’s true or not. You also don’t have enough information to make choices.
Do you break up with them first? Do you confront them about it and get it over with? Do you avoid them as much as possible?
And then it happens. They break up with you. And yeah, it’s sad but at the same time you feel…RELIEF.
All of anxiety and panic is raised off of you and you can finally have clarity moving forward.
I really think for our dogs they have a lot of unwanted behaviors because they’re uncertain about what’s happening in their life. They don’t have enough information to make good decisions.
Having a lack of clarity creates a ton of grey.
This happens from a lack of corrections. A lack of rewards. A lack of communication. A lack of structure. A lack of boundaries. A lack of clear expectations.
Take that anxiety and panic off of your dogs shoulders. Take time to dedicate teaching what’s expected of them through corrections and reward. Have solid structure and boundaries so the dog ALWAYS knows what’s going to happen in their life.
Have you ever been in a situation where you weren’t sure what the outcome was going to be and you felt like you couldn’t make decisions because you didn’t have enough info? (Ex: at my old job there were rumors of mass layoffs and I was so stressed trying to decide if I should just leave the job or wait to see if I’ll be let go or kept on – stressful stuff for sure)
