I’m going to read your story now.
Maybe you’ve heard it before, but I just do my interpretation of this and let me know in the comments what you think about.
The weight of the glass
Once upon a time, a psychology professor worked around on a stage while teaching stress management principle to an auditorium filled with students.
As he raised a glass of water, everyone expected a typical question glass half empty or glass half full.
Instead, with a smile on his face, the professor asked, however, is this glass of water I’m holding?
Students shouted out answers ranging from a bunch of grams to a couple of kilos.
He replied, from my perspective, the absolute weight of this class doesn’t matter. It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light.
If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little.
If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely Crump up and feel completely number paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor, in which case the weight of the glass doesn’t change.
But the longer I hold it, the effort it feels to me. As the class shook their heads in agreement, the professor continued, Your stresses and worries in life are very much like the glass of water.
Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little.
Think about them all day long and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed, incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.
Well, this is a very powerful story, the Weight of the Glass story.
