A snake entered a carpenter’s workshop looking for food.
The untidy carpenter had left several of his tools lying on the floor, including a jagged and sharp saw.
The snake slithered across the floor and climbed over the saw, which gave it a little cut.
The snake thought that the saw was attacking it! It turned around and bit the saw so hard that its mouth started to bleed.
This made the snake very angry.
So the snake decided to roll around the saw as if wanting to suffocate it with the coils of its body.
As the snake squeezed the saw the snake got hurt even more.
Because of that, the snake thought it had to attack harder so it squeezed even more.
This went on until one of them lost the battle.
The next morning when the carpenter entered his workshop he was surprised to find a dead snake cut in half and a bloody saw.
Fighting every “battle” will rarely help you live a successful and happy life. Some battles will take much more from you than you will get from them, even if you win them.
Chose your battles wisely.
