My everyday life is a rollercoaster of anxiety, stress, shame and fear. For a long time I did not know what caused these feelings because I didn't allow myself to see the truth. It may seem crazy, but it's my dog. It's the best dog in the world but EXTREMELY demanding being a Wolfdog. I have identified how his behaviour creates havoc in my life and I'm working on training him. But whatever I do I will not be able to change these circumstances within the closest 5-10 years. It's a situation I put myself in. And I write this to look for help how to change myself to manage this situation. The situation might be special but I think it would be the same of you lived with another person/child that generated the same problems.
I need to develop some means to harden myself so that I can face these elements without allowing them to destroy me. But how do I do that? How do I make it so that these things doesn't affect me?
I promise myself over and over I have to be patient and not let it affect me. But then there are situations, more frequent of late, the I just absolutely can't manage. I have broken down and even cried because of the hopelessness of the situation. I get angry and I make the situation even worse. I am heading into a depression.
I need advice, human advice about human problem. How to find resolve. How to always remain cool. Hope to never ever loose my mind. How to always stay positive.
Where do I start?
And please, no suggestions about my dog or what to do with it. This is a subreddit for humans.
TLDR; In repeating stressful situations: How to find resolve. How to always remain cool. Hope to never ever loose my mind. How to always stay positive.
