Can Animals Change a Human’s Ways and Traits? an essay by P.E. Eleftheriou

They say a dog is a man’s best friend. Animals have been man’s companions since the early ages. In certain cases, they even helped to change people’s behaviour and way of thinking. Is that even possible? Believe it or not, it is!
Firstly, animals, like dogs, give unconditional love to someone, no matter their origin; race etc., but they also know whether somebody is unfriendly or dangerous. In that case, if an animal shows affection to a person not liked by lots of people or isolated from society, they might start to believe they deserve the rest of the world’s respect and acceptance. In that way, that feeling encourages them to try and become better human beings.
In addition, by loving an animal and caring about it, a person learns to feel the same about other people; close to them or not.
Secondly, experiences also change somebody’s character. Likewise, a special bond between a human and their pet can have the same effects. For instance, somebody may not have anybody to support them in their life, but their little four-legged friend is still there for them. Furthermore, petting a cute or adoring animal can chase all of somebody’s anxiety and stress away and the rest seems insignificant.
However, some may think that all the views I pointed out only apply to animal-lovers. This might seem accurate, still, it is not. In other words, it is on the cards that non-animal lovers can have a change of heart just by spending time with them.
Animals are the only innocent beings on earth, so maybe we should start taking some of their traits as examples. Lots of people use the expression “behave like an animal”, yet I believe we should start questioning ourselves: “Are humans behaving like animals or are animals behaving like humans?”.
