The Story of a man and his street
Let me share with you, a short story containing five scenes with an analogy worst sharing.....
I walk down a street, and there’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. It takes forever to get out. It’s not my fault.
I walk down the same street. I fall in the hole again. It still takes a long time to get out. It’s my fault.
I walk down the same street. I fall in the hole again. It’s becoming a habit. It’s definitely my fault. I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street and see the deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
I walk down a different street.
The story made me think of some things that I have faced in my life. How many times must I fall into the same hole?......Wouldn’t I come out as someone who never learns, someone who is dense, silly, unintelligent, if I kept falling into the same hole, over and over again?
