Few things in life are as uniquely frustrating as when we find ourselves standing in our own way.
For some reason, there have been a lot of times in my life when I was utterly convinced that I would either hate something or that something terrible would happen if I did it. And yet, when I actually went, I would discover that I loved it and even forgot why I thought I wouldn't.
However, the unfortunate truth is that we can know we'll love something, but recognize that we'll still have to face our fears to enjoy it. And for one young man, that's a big part of the challenge he faces when he has the chance to meet new dogs.
