When life is difficult and we face problems, we feel the urge to share them with the people we love and trust, so we know we are not alone.
A woman’s world was shattered into a million pieces when she learned that her husband was cheating on her. She needed to talk to someone, so she went to her grandma to explain everything.
The old lady told her to come to the kitchen and watch her. She took three pots with boiling water and took an egg, a carrot, and some coffee beans to put in the pots.
The woman was confused but the grandmother asked her to be patient. After a bit, she told her granddaughter to take the carrot out of the water and tell her what did the water do to the vegetable.
It softened the root of the carrot, while it hardened the egg, said the woman. In the third pot, the coffee beans were the ones that changed the water.
The grandmother asked her to decide which one she was, the egg, the carrot, or the coffee beans. When difficulties come into our life, sometimes make us soft, and we are more flexible and more understanding.
Other times it makes us tougher and stronger. But if we chose to be a coffee bean, we do not let situations affect us, and we do the best we can to elevate ourselves to another level and change the situations in the way it suits us.
The woman learned a great lesson that day. What do you think about this? What about you, which one are you? Share your thoughts in the comments on Facebook and tell us more about your experiences.
