The Fable of Porcupine (worth reading)

***********************

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
This way they covered &
protected themselves;
but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other & they began to die, alone & frozen.

So they had to make a choice..

Either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.

They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the warmth & heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual
learns to live with the imperfections of others & can admire the other person’s good qualities.

Better to be surrounded by warm pricks than be frozen in solitude!!!!!!
