Fear

My grandma told me a story about her neighbor’s dog. Terrified of the world, she was too scared to go outside. A professional dog trainer was hired to help the pup overcome her fear. He said, “Take her out while she’s still shaking, gently drag her along with the leash, and give her rest every few feet. Above anything else, don’t let her go an inch backward. Only forward. Soon she’ll be running and playing on the leash like a whole new puppy.”

Metaphors, metaphors.
