I’m sure a lot of you have heard this story but for those that have not, I’m writing this for you.
“A bird was flying south for the winter. But because it was so cold, it froze and fell to the ground on a large field.
As it lay dying there, a cow came by and shit on it. The frozen bird covered in cow dung then realized how much warmth the dung provided.
The dung was thawing it. He lay there warm and happy and began to sing for joy!
A cat not far away heard the bird sing and went to look for the bird. The cat soon found the bird, dug him out of the dung, and ate the bird.”
What does the story teach us?
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3. And when you’re in deep shit, it’s better to keep your mouth shut.
We all get shitted on in life. Being a good person does not mean we have to put up with other people’s crap! But we need to live spending life decisions based on our goals. Not shit.
