The story of 2 Frogs, which one are you?
It’s the rainy season once again in India. Some people like this season while some people hate this season. However this season has its own flavors.
In the rainy season you see many animals but the most famous is the FROG, so I thought of sharing 2 FROG stories with you.
The Frog of the Well
This is about a place called Sundertalab. The place is very beautiful with a lot of greenery all around, various trees big and small and a garden of variety colorful flowers. Red, White, Violet, Orange and many other colors can be seen. The best place about Sundertalab is that it’s filled with the fragrance of the flowers.
Even if a person comes to this place feeling tired or irritated, his mood will automatically change once the fragrance enters his nose and hits the pleasure point of his brain.
In between all this greenery is also a Well. This well is filled with clean water and has now become a home of a frog. However it was not his home always.
This Frog had a very good character but always felt victimized.
Once when he was playing in the garden, some animals around told him some things about his attitude and his character which he didn’t like. He tried very hard to resist but the animals knew his weakness.
They could not see him happy so they tried to make him feel victimized and the trick worked.
The Frog was so upset that he jumped in the well while telling them that they would not see him again.
Since then the frog stayed in the well. Many people tried to pull him out of the well but he would not come out.
We as humans also have a certain resistance level and people around can’t see us happy. They will try to find out our weakness and then try to de-motivate us or trouble us to the core.
Instead of improving our resistance level, we jump into the zone of discomfort and feel like a victim. We do not want to face those people as they bring bad memories to our minds.
The people who tried to pull the frog from the well are also around us which are our well wishers, asking us to forgive and forget but we are unable to do that.
To turn this around what you should do is increase your resistance level. I know it is tough but we have to work slowly and gradually. We can’t keep avoiding people who did bad to us but we can at least either talk less to them or give them so much respect that they feel awkward themselves.
The Deaf Frog
This is a story of Imaratstan. This place was a concrete jungle full of tall buildings. You could only see big blocks all around you and the streets were always buzzing with cars and people. The people of this place however loved their sports and did some weird sports activities.
These were activities where people as well as animals had to participate. No one was spared from it. They did this so that each one could get used to handling the pressure life sometimes brings on all of us.
One such weird event which was organized on a Sunday was “The FROG Race”.
The streets were empty, the cars were on a standstill and the banners were up and fluttering in the air. The people were starting to gather around a tall building of 10 floors. Not so big for humans but very big for the small little frogs because the frogs had to climb to the top of the building.
The Whistle was out, the frogs were ready at the starting point and the people were buzzing with their big mouths wide open. Before the race started, some people already started making fun of the frogs. Words like “These small little creatures” “Ugly looking Frogs” “Aims are high but height is small”.
All the de-motivating sentences they could ever say.
Finally the whistle was blown and frogs started to climb the building.
Some frogs had already given up listening to the comment beforehand and did not even begin. Some frogs were moving upward but fell listening to more de-motivating words. All were falling one by one.
But Wait! One little frog kept going and the people were amazed. He finally reached the top. The people were surprised how he managed to achieve this feat.
When people tried to find out they learnt that the frog was deaf so he did not hear any comments.
In life when we want to achieve something in life, there will be roadblocks. The situations can be dealt with but when it’s people the game becomes difficult. We are all made out of emotions. Emotions affect us more than situations. Sometimes in life, one of our own family members maybe de-motivating us.
The best thing to do is to be in silence, analyze the situation and keep moving ahead taking small steps.
If we open up our plans and we are unable to do things then we will be criticized as people can’t see your effort but can see your failure easily.
Hope you liked both the stories and would share it with someone who maybe in need.
Cheers and Best Wishes!!!
