Dogs have this weird ability to teach humans how to be better humans, whether you believe it or not. They have this ability to shape us, help us do things the right way, show us the true meaning of life, don’t you agree? Here’s Part 1 in case you missed it!
Here are some ways dogs help us become better humans!
1. They teach you how to support others in their times of need
Your dog won’t judge you for eating a whole tub of ice cream because you’ve had a bad day. They teach you not to judge others in their time of need and be there. You’ll notice that your dog is always available for cuddles when you’re feeling low, isn’t it? Well, that’s what they teach us too!
2. They teach us to be healthy!
Sleep is so so precious, isn’t it? But imagine if you’re sacrificing a healthy lifestyle just so you can sleep for longer hours? Dogs teach us that being healthy is equally important and so they won’t mind dragging you out in the sun for some much-needed vitamin D.
3. They teach you to never be depressed!
As a dog parent, I can guarantee that no dog parent has ever been depressed and felt unloved, it’s just impossible! Dogs teach us to love each other to the point that they never feel lonely, depressed or unloved! How many of you agree?!
4. They teach us to understand and accept that no one is perfect!
Doesn’t everyone strive for perfection? Everyone does because they don’t want anyone else to think that otherwise. Everything needs to be perfect and when it isn’t, they feel embarrassed. Dogs teach us that no one is ever perfect and that we should learn to accept that. Mistakes is the only way you’ll learn and be better!
5. They teach us the importance of alone-time!
I know, didn’t I recently write about how dogs don’t give us our personal space? While that’s true, there are times they leave us alone so they can enjoy some alone-time. They do this to relax and enjoy some peace. Dogs teach us that alone-time is necessary if you want to relax your mind and prepare for more happy times!
