What do you do in a hot situation?



From Beyond Blue from Beliefnet Newsletter

A spiritual journey to mental health by Therese J. Barchard:
"Psychologist Elvira Aletta of Psych Central writes:

Did you know that if you boil a pot of water and throw in a live frog that that frog will hop right out, saving his life to croak again another day (ha, ha)? If, on the other hand, you place a frog in a pot of cold water and turn the heat up slowly, that frog will stay in the pot. He will not jump out but slowly acclimate to the increasingly hot water until it boils to death."
Kind of interesting to think about isn't it?

We receive many conflicting tenets concerning what is mature and right-thinking behavior. On one had, the cautionary frog-in-hot-water story is presented to us. On the other, admiring stories about people who "stuck it out" are presented to us. Life is very complex.
