Yesterday I read an inspirational story about encouragement written by Chris Wormell on the internet which has a very deep meaning. This story is about two frogs who fell into the pit and how their other friends’ words affect their lives. I want to share this story with my family. Hope you all will like it and learn something from it. 

A group of frogs was traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. Other frogs crowded around the pit and when they saw how deep it was, they told the two frogs that there was no hope left for them to come out. 

However, both the frogs decided to ignore what the others were saying and they continue to try and jump out of the pit. Despite their efforts, the group of frogs were still saying that they should just give up. That they would never come out of it.

Eventually, one of the frogs paid attention to what the others were saying and he gave up, falling down to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again, the crowd of frogs shout at him to stop the efforts. 

The frog jumped even harder and finally came out of the pit. When he came out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog told them that he was deaf. He thought that they were encouraging him the entire time, so he didn’t give up hope. 

Moral of the story:

People’s words have a big effect on other’s lives. Think twice about what you say before it comes out of your mouth. It might just be the difference between life and death.
