When You’re Feeling Anxious, Where Do You Run?

Where do you run when feeling anxious and afraid?

I was raised in a loving home. My parents were there for me and I knew I could run to them for help. I also had the most wonderful Springer Spaniel. I probably ran to him more than anyone else for comfort.

There’s something about the presence of a dog that’s incredibly comforting and calming. That’s why so many people have comfort dogs, to help them deal with anxiety.

Where do you run when you’re feeling anxious and afraid?
