MORAL OF THE PORCUPINE . . . :) ~J . . . thanks to SG . . .

I never knew porcupines were so cute as babies.
Good story with a great message.

Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?

Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered & protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone & frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others & can admire the other person’s good qualities.

The moral of the story is:


Just learn to live with the Pricks in your life

    This is a picture of a baby Pygmy Hedgehog not a porcupine. I have rehabilitated porcupines and this is not one of them. I’ve also owned 5 hedgehogs and this is exactly what they look like. Someone is misinformed.

    No worries, dear Jean. I just know because I’ve seen quite a number of hedgehogs as well as porcupines in my life. Theyr faces are very different and I doubt that I would ‘hug’ even a baby porcupine.

    Nice answer, Ev……

    Obviously this story doesn’t apply to situations where wounds are serious and potentially lethal in and of themselves. Big wounds are a more complicated issue. The story addresses “little” wounds caused by “companions”, and in that sense I think the story is really good. None of us are perfect, all of us have issues, which can lead us to harming others no doubt. And quite frankly, unless we accept others’ imperfections, we’re never going to come together. This is a very timely fable because I feel that today people are very judgmental and easily discomfited by behavior that is anything other than happy-go-lucky. People don’t want to deal with other people’s attitudes or sadness or anger, by rebuffing, ignoring, or discounting it, instead of just hearing the person. It’s very unfortunate….relationships are very superficial, and being fake happy actually makes forming deeper bonds impossible. Personally, I fear exposing to people my struggles, because I know they don’t want to hear it, unless they’re a therapist and you pay them to listen. We will all need to be pricked as well as prick in the process of addressing the darkness of our human existence which most people still refuse to see.

    The story is wonderful but I have a feeling that this is a baby hedgehog not a porcupine.
