Turtle

Anne shared with me a conversation she had with her senior in faith. The senior shared a recent experience with a fellow member. This member, a girl, is someone who always wallow in self pity, feeling sorry for herself and thinking that the world is against her and that she's powerless against it. The senior in faith likened the member to a turtle with a huge rock (aka daily problems in life) in front of its path. Here's what the senior said:

"everyday u stick out ur head and hope that the STONE in front of u would dissappear. So when u wake up & still see that it's still there, u stick back ur head in to ur back (shell) again... hoping tomr it will be gone.

"then u do the same thing again everyday till now. cos i said u know why? becos u did NOTHING to change it, u neither turn ur back, move left or right or even ask help from ppl to help u overcome that stone.

"which methaphormically means no seniors in faith to refer, no family or sisters to ask, no Sensei guidance reading just sit there and ponder with a blank head. hahahah..."

So true to many of us, eh? Let's resolve NOT to be a turtle!
