old anecdote i now believe

Posted , 3 users are following.

One day while flying with in a flock, a single sparrow lost his way and was seperated from the others. Being lost and alone he flew and flew trying to catch his friends but instead flew into a cold spell and his wings froze. Unable to fly the poor little sparrow plummeted to the ground and landed in a farmers field, alone and freezing to death the sparrow accepted his fate and lay there preparing himself for death. Just then a cow happened past and dropped a cowpat directly on the sparrow. The warmth from the cowpat defrosted the sparrows wings leaving the sparrow so happy he started to cheep and chirp ready to start flying again. Just then a cat happened by and on hearing the cheeping and chipping went to investigate. He soon happened upon this cowpat and being curious decided to dig, after a whike he cane across the sparrow and ate it? Moral of this story? Not everyone who craps on you will necessarily be your enemy and not everyone who digs you out the crap will necessarily be your friend. 

I have no idea why I have wrote this only that I sometimes find it(although painful) better for me to suffer in silence. It is not the best solution for everyone and I by no means advise others to do the same, I know myself that a problem shared is a problem halved this is just my own coping mechanism and is not advice for others.

    David. I also sometimes think it is better to be on your own when you feel bad. Somehow trying to put a brave face on or having to talk or say the right thing is more difficult than being lonely and alone. Sadly you are right about people supposedly digging you out of crap and being out of their depth or saying things that are untrue but not becaues they are nasty or liars but because they do not know their subject but like to think they know it. More out of ego than wanting to genuinely help.

      My dear dear robin, what a lady you are? In away I am sorry I found this site as I now find myself missing reading your and robertas posts. You both have restored my faith in human nature, you being across the pond, Roberta somewhere in the glorious fields of England. Me a person craving to help others and probably in dire need of help myself, I've past caring about myself tho and concentrate on helping others, people who know me don't understand so I can't expect you or Roberta to, I am a very complex person hun, I want to heal the world which I know I can't, I want to turn back the clock which I know I can't. I suffer the fate of realising a billion ways a minute how mankind can be more beneficial to himself and his neighbour. Everything about me should be praising the Lord or whatever because I am an able bodied person, my family are very wealthy, I have travelled alot of the world, met lovelly people, if I wanted I have friends in many counties and thousands where I live. Why am I the way I am? I've no idea, sister died, breakdown, New outlook on life. Walk instead of flying hun , if gave you example of what I seen when a child about walking, anyway never mind. I've missed your comments and appreciate your imput angel. Think I,'ll get drunk, won't solve anything but I,m sick of hiding from what I know is my destiny. X

      Roberta my dear dear friend. When I,m feeling low now, the compulsion of switching my data back on is so overbearing that I can't resist. I read your posts or look at your cheary little face and it never fails to make me smile. Thank you for being such a pleasant lady.
