hmm you're right madam... :(

Every Obstacle Presents an Opportunity to Improve Our Condition

There once was a very wealthy and curious king. This king had a huge boulder placed in the middle of a road. Then he hid nearby to see if anyone would try to remove the gigantic rock from the road.

The first people to pass by were some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers. Rather than moving it, they simply walked around it. A few loudly blamed the King for not maintaining the roads. Not one of them tried to move the boulder.

Finally, a peasant came along. His arms were full of vegetables. When he got near the boulder, rather than simply walking around it as the others had, the peasant put down his load and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. It took a lot of effort but he finally succeeded.

The peasant gathered up his load and was ready to go on his way when he say a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The peasant opened the purse. The purse was stuffed full of gold coins and a note from the king. The king’s note said the purse’s gold was a reward for moving the boulder from the road.

The king showed the peasant what many of us never understand: every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

Informative!!  :)

Shake off Your Problems

A man’s favorite donkey falls into a deep precipice. He can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries. He therefore decides to bury it alive.

Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it. More soil is poured.
It shakes it off and steps up. The more the load was poured, the higher it rose. By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures.

After much shaking off (of problems) and stepping up (learning from them), One will graze in GREEN PASTURES.

English / Few Ways to Remove Depression Naturally

1.  Consider why you might feel depressed: Sometimes depression is a symptom of something circumstantial in our life, rather than biochemical imbalances. Are we suffering from creative blocks? Is our body failing us? Are we facing financial ruin? We need to be honest with ourself about what might be the problem of our life, and make an effort to get to the root of why we might be feeling depressed.
2.  Move your body: Exercise releases happy-making endorphins, which act like natural anti-depressants.
3. Never skip a meal: Keeping our blood sugar stable reduces mood swings.
4.  Expose yourself to sunlight, which can boost mood and increase Vitamin D levels.
5.    Meditate: Meditation's effects on mood are well documented. Settling our mind can lift our mood, in addition to a whole host of other health benefits.
6. Make efforts to boost your mental health by being more authentic in all aspects of your life: Too often, we walk around wearing masks, pretending to be something we're not. We fake it at the schoolyard, in the boardroom, in the bedroom, with friends and neighbors-- and then we wonder why we wind up depressed. So, we need to stop that.
7.  Talk it out: Sometimes just finding someone we trust who will help us work through our feelings can make all the difference in the world.
