Becoming Your Own Best friend

Have you ever felt sad? Lonely?  Numb? 

Over the years I have had to learn to become my own best friend. There were many nights I would spend crying myself to sleep, sad and lonely with every given heartache. Over time I realized that I had to become my own best friend, I had to learn to comfort myself to over come the pain. It’s a process and I am still learning how to do it, but I have gotten so much better. I can honestly say that I am my own best friend. We need to love ourselves the same way you would love your own best friend, we deserve as much love and care as we give. Self love is very important, without it we can’t grow as people and we will never be able to let go of all the negativity that ways us down. There is nothing wrong with comforting ourselves which will actually bring out the best in you.

A Farmers Donkey- A Fable with Moral

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out.

Finally the farmer decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn’t worth it to try and retrieve the donkey.

So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and help him cover up the well. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well.


At first, when the donkey realized what was happening he cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down and let out some happy brays.


A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well to see what was happening and was astonished at what he saw. 
With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was shaking it off and taking a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he continued to shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, to everyone’s amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

  1.  Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
  2.  Moral : Every adversity can be turned into a stepping stone. The way to get out of the deepest well is by never giving up but by shaking yourself off and taking a step up.
  3.  Moral : In life, what happens to you isn’t nearly as important as what you do about it or how you react to the happening.
