One day a small gap appeared in the cocoon through which the butterfly had to appear. A boy, who accidentally passed by, stopped and watched how the butterfly was trying to get out of the cocoon. It took a lot of time, the butterfly was trying very hard, and the gap was as little as before. It seemed that the power would leave the butterfly soon.
The boy decided to help the butterfly. He took a penknife and cut the cocoon. The butterfly immediately got out, but its body was weak and feeble and the wings were barely moving.
The boy continued to watch the butterfly thinking that it would spread its wings and fly. However, that did not happen.
For the rest of its life, the butterfly had to drag its weak body and wings that weren’t spread. It was unable to fly because the boy did not realize that an effort to enter through the narrow gap of the cocoon was necessary for the butterfly so that the life-giving fluid would move from the body to the butterfly’s wings and that the it could fly. Life forced the butterfly to leave its shell hardly, so that it would become stronger and would be able to grow and develop.
Every challenges and difficulties you encounter along the way are meant to strengthen and prepare you for the future. Rant not for whatever obstacle you undergo to achieve your goals; instead be blessed for at the end of it all, you’ll emerge as the wonderful butterfly ready to flaunt its beauty.
