Let me give an example-The peon working at my dad’s office has never once entered our house thanx to my dog.He just doesnt let him enter.The reason-The peon is just too afraid of him.No matter how much we tell him that the dog wont do anything to him,his fear doesnt go.My dog senses this fear and becomes more ferocious at him.Now we also have this new servant at home who has just joined work.When the first day he came,we said the same thing and he trusted us and just went in straight to the dog with no fear and let the dog sniff him.Today,the dog wags his tail like crazy whenever the servant comes home.They even play a lot together.The peon even now just hands the stuff from the gate itself,never coming inside.
I think you already have got the point I am trying to make.My dog is similar to your stammer and the person at the gate is you .Some of you have shunned your fear and got past the gate and now enjoying and playing with the dog while the majority of you are still gripped in fear which is making your stammer more ferocious day by day.And what is this gate-this gate is Acceptance !!! And despite several people making assurances (including me)that it is okay to accept your stutter,your fear still prevents you from opening the gate and come into a brand new world.
So,which person are you right now ???? Are you the peon at the gate being barked at by the dog or are you the one inside playing and having fun !!!!!
