Can we learn to live with the pricks in our lives?


It was the coldest winter ever.Many animals died because of the cold, but the porcupines, realizing the seriousness of the situation,decided to group together to keep warm. This way, they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of some, wounded their closest companions. So, after a while, they distanced themselves from one another and many died, alone and frozen.

Of course they could have made a different choice by accepting the wounds of their companions or disappear from the earth. Wisely, they got back together and learned to live with the wounds caused by their companions, in order to receive the heat exuding from their neighbors. They survived.

The best relationship is not necessarily the one that brings together perfect people. When individuals learn the good qualities of their neighbors as well as learn to live with the imperfections of others,their lives might change.
