A Man Found A Cocoon Of A Butterfly
One Day A Small Opening Appeared
He Sat And Watched The Butterfly For Several Hours
As It Struggled To Squeeze Its Body Through The Tiny Hole
Then It Stopped, As If It Couldn’t Go Any Further.

So The Man Decided To Help The Butterfly
He Took A Pair Of Scissors And
Snipped Off The Remaining Bits Of The Cocoon.
The Butterfly Emerged Easily, But
It Had A Swollen Body And Shriveled Wings.

The Man Continued To Watch It,
Expecting At Any Minute The Wings Would Enlarge
And Expand Enough To Support The Body
Neither Happened!
Infact The Butterfly Spent The Rest Of Its Life
Crawling Around.
It Was Never Able To Fly.

What The Man In His Kindness
And Haste Did Not Understand;
The Restricting Cocoon And The Struggle
Required By The Butterfly To Get Through The Opening
Was A Way Of Forcing The Fluid From The Body
Into The Wings So That It Would Be Ready
For Flight Once That Was Achieved.

Sometimes Struggles Are Exactly
What We Need In Our Lives.
Going Through Life With No Obstacles Would Cripple Us
We Will Not Be As Strong As We Could Have Been
And We Would Never Fly.
