|"’If I were to squeeze the orange as hard as I could,
what would come out?’ I asked him.
He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said,
‘Juice, of course.’
‘Do you think apple juice could come out of it?’
‘No’ he laughed.
‘What about grapefruit juice?’ ‘No!’
‘What would come out of it?’
‘Orange juice, of course.’
Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?’
He may have been getting a little exasperated
with me at this point.
‘Well, it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside.
‘Let’s assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you.
And someone squeezes you,
puts pressure on you,
says something you don’t like,
And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear.
The answer, as our young friend has told us,
is because that’s what’s inside.’
It’s one of the great lessons of life.
What comes out when life squeezes you?
When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear
come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside.
It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing:
If someone says something about you that you don’t like,
what comes out of you is what’s inside.
And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.
When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes
anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed
to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t
want in your life and replace them with love, you’ll find
yourself living a highly functioning life."
HAVE YOU BEEN HONEST?

” When people hurt you Over and Over think of them as Sand paper.
They Scratch & hurt you, but in the end you are polished and they are finished. ”
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great."- Mark Twain.
