From what the Coach has told me, I know nothing about the first principle of the Boston Bulldogs -
He tells me that it encompasses stepping out of our comfort zones and facing the struggle to find our true potential, our kind-hearted warrior.
Coach can be relentless with his "messages". I tell him I am fine and as a matter of fact, I do practice the principle of transparency. I admit I am one lazy Bulldog and would rather
stay at home and sleep.
He is getting the message that I have decided not to change. His backing off has eased his anxiety and our relationship is more relaxed.
So, if you are concerned about a friend or loved one, it's better to accept your limitations with respect to their choices. Sometimes it is better to focus on relating to that person where they are -- rather than where you want them to be.
Peace out Dogs,
