The company you keep will determine the trouble you meet.
Have you ever seeing an entire oyster shell without an oyster in it? You may have wondered how the oyster got out you might look for a very small hole in the top of the shell.
Such a hole is making by a whelk.
The little ocean creature has an appendage that works somewhat like an auger.
With if, the whelk bores into the oyster shell and then sucks the oyster through the hole, little by little, until it has devoured it all.
Though small, a whelk can do great harm.
Very often,we allow another person’s angry outbursts their critical comments to bore a hole into our good nature and rob us of our otherwise sunny disposition.
If we aren’t careful, we can become irritated to the point where genuine anger and bitterness begin to sit in us, and when that happens, we are in very real danger of experiencing disease, disharmony, and discord.
One of the best things you can do is simply to avoid those people whom you fine, continually critical, or habitually angry at life, as well as those who seem to delight in needing you.
Another words, stay out of the way of whelks.
You will be healthier and happier for it!
Make no friendship with an angry man
And with a furious man thou shalt not go
Less thou learn his ways
And get a snare to thy soul.
