Lassie feels really small entering large open spaces, a feeling that was never changed with help. When she was six, both of us have tried 'to do walks on the beachn but they were not successful at all and left both of us with An aversion to it. I was not skilled to help her feel brave back then.
Since I have her back with me, at 17, the feeling only had so many years to grow bigger. The last two years we worked on getting braver, she as Well as I. We've been growing and this was the cherry on our 'bravery Pie. She was still feeling stressed, bit this time I could help her, by guiding her and reassuring her. I kept her close to the dunes, so she had support there and there was only half of the open space. I could feel her trusting her bravery and my guidance. This was such a huge Milestone in adressing one of her biggest fears! So proud of you Lassie, you did amazing.
