A Man Fell into a Deep Hole
Wednesday, May 09, 2007
There's a story from Alcoholics Anonymous that applies perfectly to SparkPeople:
A man fell into a deep hole and couldn't get out.
A clergyman happened by, saw and listened to his predicament, and said "I'll pray for you."
A therapist came by, saw and listened to his situation, and wrote a prescription.
Then his friend walked by. His friend heard the man calling for help, and came to the edge of the hole.
"Can you help me get out?" the man asked. "Sure," said his friend, and he jumped into the hole.
"What are you doing???" asked the man. "Now you're stuck down here with me!"
"Don't worry," said his friend. "I've been down here before, and I know the way out."
