When a bee stings you, it leaves its stringer in your flesh

I stepped on a bee in the park once and it stung the foot of my sole.

But my mother was so afraid of bees, and they stung her every time she got close to them… Then, for days on end, she could be the center of attention…

This article uses the bee-sting as an analogy… to show how an early incident effects your life… forever. 

The bee sting and the stinger

Do you know when a bee stings you, it leaves its stinger in you? And unless you can dig it out, it is the source of infection, swelling, and much much pain. Continue reading “When a bee stings you, it leaves its stringer in your flesh”

Why changing your circumstances won’t change anything

I woke up with the question: if circumstances changed, would I be happier? Would YOU be happier?
