The Bigger they are...

There's a saying... the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Well, little bear met a large bear today, and it's true he did seem kind of hard. This was not a soft, cuddly bear like our friend little bear. No, this was a rock solid, iron hard bear. Frozen in time and space. Little bear tried to sidle up and make friends, but these bears weren't the type.

The sat there and stood there, immovable and solid. Little bear tried hopping around... no response. He started at them with a sad look for a while. But then he realized that there were a lot more bears out there... more his size and style! Time to get moving and keep looking!

Little bear could have stayed there and tried to turn the iron hard bears into something softer... but he would have been there a long time. A very long time. He's a wise little bear, and he realizes the futility of trying to make others be different than they are. Better for little bear to move on and find other bears who are his type! Good message for us as well.
