I recently listened to an awesome Ed Mylett podcast where he was talking about how people respond to stress, and sharing an analogy which I loved.
Some things turn soft in boiling water, like a carrot.
Other things get harder when boiled, like eggs.
But a coffee bean transforms the water into something new, it changes its surroundings and becomes something desired.
Reflect on some of the people in your life.
Who has let the water (their challenging experiences) make them soft?
Who has built up a wall and become harder?
Which one are you?
Be a coffee bean.
