Jump Out Or Adjust!

Toxic people

Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water.
As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps on adjusting with increase in temperature…
Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore…
At that point the frog decides to jump out…
The frog tries to jump but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature…
Very soon the frog dies.
What killed the frog?
Many of us would say the boiling water…
But the truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out.

This story is known as the boiling frog theory. There are times when we have to adjust to certain people and situations and there are times when we also have to “jump” out of situations that cause us misery and pain.

We shouldn’t be like the frog. We should know when to say enough is enough! Are you going to jump out or are you going to adjust? The choice is yours!
