Monday Morning Inspiration # 62

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed.

The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised. That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn't sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.

Moral of the story: If you don't give your hundred percent in a relationship, you'll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like friendship, love, employer-employee relationship etc.,

Absolutely! Thank you so much! :)

ok here is the answer.

the chicken contributed to the breakfast with eggs.
but the pig committed itself to the breakfast.

its like a relationship, you can do your part or you can dedicate yourself.
Being the pig hurts more, but it means more.

But one thing i do not understand is that in both the cases it is the good one who is going to face that torture isn't ,the other person will misunderstand him or fight with him or do something which will affect the other person's peace!!! Do you agree?What is your opinion on this.

this is a lovely post.
The other aspect as i see from this post is also the element of trust.

a relationship cant survive without trust.
