von wegen halb voll oder halb leer – teil 2
die klugscheisserversion hatten wir schon. hier nun ein klein wenig philosophischer ansatz:
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected theyâ€™d be asked the â€œhalf empty or half fullâ€ question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: â€œHow heavy is this glass of water?â€Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.She replied, â€œThe absolute weight doesnâ€™t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, itâ€™s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, Iâ€™ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesnâ€™t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.â€ She continued, â€œThe stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed â€“ incapable of doing anything.â€Itâ€™s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Donâ€™t carry them through the evening and into the night.Remember to put the glass down!
