Burdens

Leave a comment

A lecturer was giving a lecture to his students on stress management. He raised a glass of water and asked the audience, “how heavy do you think this glass of water is?” The students answers ranged from 20gm to 500gm. “It does not matter on the absolute. It depends on how long you hold it. If i hold it for a minute, it is Ok. If i hold it for an hour, I will have an ache in my right arm. If i hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance. It is the exact same weight but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes,” “If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will not be able to carry on, the burden becoming increasingly heavier. What you have to do is to put the glass down, rest for a while before holding it up again.”
