He stand beside the cocoon and watched the butterfly for many hours as it was trying to come out from that little hole. It struggled hard but could not get out and for some time looked like it was stuck.

 

                                                Therefore the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a scissor and cut the little hole bigger. The butterfly then came out easily with a small and swollen body, shriveled wings.

 

 

                                                                The man wait for hours to enlarge the wings of the butterfly to support it to fly. But that was never happened. The butterfly could never fly and have to crawl around for the rest of it’s life with tiny wings and a swollen body.

 

 

                                                                 Though the man has a kind heart, he did not understand that he had restricted the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself out through the small hole is the natural way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings to prepare itself for flying when it come out from the cocoon.

Because our struggles are the way of learning things needed for us in our life and making us stronger. If we take help from others than we may be out from that particular struggle, but life is full of struggles, and other struggles will shatter us when we will be unable to do it by ourselves.
