Bow and Arrow

my friend told me something very interesting, something i'd never thought of before

he said,

So you know how a bow works right? for a bow and arrow

I said,

yeah of course i do

he said,

you know the string of the bow?

I said


he said,

think of all yourself as the arrow

I said,


he said,

and think of all your problems as the string of the bow

they have to pull you backwards to launch you forward

my mind was blown
