Another dog reference for you all!
I’m trying to take my friend’s dog out for a walk and she doesn’t know me very well. (also associates me with Louis, probably) I tried to give her a dog treat while I sitting there staring at her, and it just seemed to give her more anxiety. As soon as I sat down and looked away, I heard her happily chomping away.
People want value on their own terms. Forceful connections don’t build good relationships.
