The Battle of Three Dogs
A windy night yesterday,
I came out of my house after dinner & saw three dogs roaming around.
Observed them for few minutes, felt like they are searching for something to eat.
Went back into my house & searched for something.
Found 3 slices of bread.
Out of the three dogs, one was still small & young. The other too were old & big.
I put the first slice of bread to the smaller one, one of the the other two dogs scared the younger one & the other ate the slice.
Put the second slice again near the smaller one, the other big dog took the slice while the other scared the younger one. The smaller dog got scared & went a few steps behind.
I realised that they have teamed up & will not let the small dog have anything.
I decided to wait until I put the next slice. All the 3 dogs were waiting.
I went inside my house.
When I came out after 10-15 mins, the two bigger dogs had left & the smaller dog was still waiting.
I put the third slice, it ate happily.
What did the younger dog show?
It showed persistence.
A lot of times in life, we all come across situations where we have no support & have to face the difficult situations all alone.
We just need to keep hanging in there, not give up & keep trying.
#persistence #life #nevergiveup
