    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall addresses a dilemma sent in by a listener named Shirley, who seeks advice on a challenging situation. Shirley and her boyfriend are preparing to move in together, but her boyfriend’s beloved German Shepherd, Luna, poses a significant obstacle due to Shirley’s deep-seated fear of dogs.

Shirley shares her fear stemming from a traumatic childhood experience with Niall, expressing her concerns about living with Luna under the same roof. Despite her attempts to communicate her fears to her boyfriend, he remains steadfast in keeping Luna, even stating that he would choose the dog over Shirley.

Opening the lines to callers, Niall invites listeners to weigh in on Shirley’s predicament. Some callers advocate for Shirley to confront her fear of dogs, suggesting therapy or counseling as a means to overcome her phobia and foster a harmonious relationship with Luna and her boyfriend.

Others sympathize with Shirley’s position, criticizing her boyfriend’s unwillingness to compromise and prioritize their relationship over his attachment to Luna. They emphasize Shirley’s right to feel safe and comfortable in her own home, suggesting that her boyfriend’s refusal to consider rehoming Luna may indicate deeper issues in the relationship.

As the discussion unfolds, Niall provides insights and guidance to Shirley and other callers, navigating the complexities of relationships and fears. Ultimately, he encourages Shirley to prioritize her mental well-being and make decisions that align with her needs and boundaries.

Join Niall as he delves into Shirley’s dilemma and offers valuable advice on navigating relationships and overcoming fears.
