Stiffest Tree is Most Easily Cracked, While Bamboo Survives by Bending in the Wind.
Bamboo is a good example to learn from when it comes to character:
- IT IS FLEXIBLE BUT YET FIRM. Mostly conflicts occur when we are being stubborn in relationship, at work etc. I can be focused and goal oriented but absence of flexibility prevents me from moving forward. Flexibility is an important component in shaping character. It causes firmness and helps to succeed in private life and carrier.
- IT IS DELICATE BUT YET STRONG. It’s girls’ nature and gift being delicate. Men like soft, kind attitude. My fiance says that “treatment is number one for him at all the times”. Looking at bamboo, sometimes it is viewed as a weed but it is a strong plant,
- Bamboo needs up to 5 years to establish the roots and then grows very fast during its first year. Conclusion: your heart is the root and the foundation. It shapes your personality. Once your heart is capable to listen, learn, forgive and love you will progress much faster in life. with the weed still it is not.
