Last week was one of my new blogger Lincoln’s birthday, and we celebrated with him here on the site. God added on another year to his life and prayed that many more years will be added also. I titled the post Happy Birthday Lincoln, the Scorpion, and I did that for a reason. Which was this very title above, as the word scorpion always reminds me of the story I am about to tell. There was a post I did sometime ago where I told the story of the Frog and the Scorpion I do not remember the post, but I will retell the story here. This post is not about Astrology or Scorpio’s, but about about people who are stuck in their ways, and have no change to change, how we should handle or deal with such persons.

 The story of the Frog and the Scorpion, makes it easier for me to get to my point.

There once was a frog who worked at the river crossing people over to the other side. He would cross them on his back and they would pay him.  Day in and day out this was his job, one he did to survive and take care of his family. One day Mrs. Scorpion asked to be taken across. Upon seeing her, the Frog (knowing her character), refused to take her across and told her “Oh no, Mrs. Scorpion, you cannot be trusted and I will not take you across the river, o matter how much money you offer”. Mrs. Scorpion, pleaded with Mr. Frog, telling him that she had her children on the other side to attend to, so he must have mercy upon her and cross her. All her pleading fell on deaf ears, the Frog refused, he knew that the Scorpion word meant nothing, and he thought once bitten twice shy, so he stood his ground and said no, absolutely not!

Mrs. Scorpion began to cry, she maintained that she would not harm him, she just needed to get to her children who needed her. Try as he might to harden his heart, the frog relented finally, but with a warning. “Ok, Mrs Scorpion, I will take you across the river”, he told her, “but, please do not sting me”. She promised and even swore that she would not. So Mr. Frog placed Mrs, Scorpion on his back and set out carrying her across the river. As he reached the other side and before she could get off his back, Mr,Frog, felt a painful sting in his back, he cried out in pain saying “Mrs. Scorpion, why did you sting me?” to which the Scorpion replied with no remorse, “It’s just in my nature”. (she cyaan help it).

The frog knew the nature of the scorpion, but allowed a soft heart to let him go against his feelings. There are people in life, you have to let go, and you must try to do it without guilt or remorse. There are some who will never change, no matter how much you want them to. Allowing them to disturb your life because you love them, is saying that you do not love yourself, and there comes a time when you have to put yourself and your feelings first, you must!

“It is just in my nature”, this is the character of some people with bad behavior, and when you see it, know it and it has affected you once or even twice, you may not survive it a third time. When someone shows you themselves, you must believe them. Jamaican people say “Soup nuh good ah mawning it cyaan good ah evening” Always remember this story. Some people are meant to be cut off and not even given the time of day, even some family. Take heed!

Once bItten twice shy, twice bitten, damn fool..and like you said when it is the persons nature to do bad..how them ago change,
A we have to change how we approach them..or simply just DON’T approach THEM at all..

When some one hurts me where I know they are opened to do so again and again..mi just keep funeral fi dem clatt. Cause dem dead to me.

I don’t care who the guy is yes dem can come back and say howdie do and because mi have manners mi will answer but from you killed what we had..it is exactly that…DEAD!!!

AND HYPROCRITY IS NOT THE I AM I STRONG SUITE. So mi not going to pretend if mi no into you no more you ago know..

And if mi still relate to you even after you bite me then that means mi ago keep you at arms length..cause I will trust you to be who you are..someone toxic. .

Hi Lincoln, Lady of the Nile, and Obara!

Lady, I don’t think the lesson is necessarily to not be kind to others. But I think it’s very true that people ALWAYS show you exactly who they are and most of the time we don’t believe them. We CHOOSE not to believe them for whatever reason or needs we have of our own. I think we have to learn to be more honest with ourselves and follow our initial instincts.

I look at it like this. Mr. Frog didn’t get stung because he was too kind. He got stung because he didn’t trust himself and follow his instincts when he knew what he was dealing with.

That is it exactly Spiritual Seeker..he knew he was dealing but because he didn’t follow his instincts and allow his heart to rule his head..he got stung..

Hi Obara and Spiritual family

This is such a stark reminder for me, I always keep forgetting and the cycle is spinned again then I get hurt. As a friend once told me I must not be too kind to others, they will always use it against me.
I will always remember.

Blessings.

Oh my Gosh OM- I was relating this same situation to a friend just this weekend about some people- I told him to let go off his feelings and let those people go because they are just programmed that way and will do the same things over and over-
Blessed Love
