Appreciation post 💕
This little guy was the best thing I did for my mental health. He does drive me round the bend but he doesn't stop giving affection like in this photo he trots up and gives me his paw and quite literally sits and holds my hand. My anxiety can get quite bad sometimes but he forces me to forget my silly troubles and focus on playing with him or getting out for some fresh air... or wet air for a walk which clears my head.
Even simple things like how many people follow his account and how we keep going up and down around the 2.2k mark and i get all pointlessly worried about why people chose to unfollow - #anxietygirl strikes again worrying about the silliest things - then he comes up and cuddles me and reminds me that actually it's not about how many people "like" you or what they think about you, it's about him and the fact he loves unconditionally.
I never thought I would get this kind of love or support from a little devil dog and be able to speak so openly about how I feel although I firmly believe he has had a positive effect on my mental health 🖒
