The Weight of Water equals the weight of your worries…


A famous psychologist was taking a seminar. She always began with the same question.

She raised a glass of water and asked – “Can anyone tell me the weight of this glass of water?”

Like always, the more the number of people, the more the number of opinions. Almost everyone gave a different answer.

She smiled  and then began to explain.

She said – “Why do you think I asked this question?”

Everyone sat there looking puzzled at her second question.

She continued- “You see the weight of glass of water is not important.  What is important is how long I hold it for. If I hold it for 1 minute it's not a problem. But for 1 hour my arm will start to ache.”




”For one whole day my arm will feel numb and weak!” A few audience were to grasp where she was going with this explanation.

”Think carefully… in each instant the weight of the glass has not changed.” The audience thought “We all know that! Why is she telling us this?”


She paused for a while and then continued – “I know you’re wondering what I am trying to say. Its very simple – our stresses and worries in life are EXACTLY like this. Think about them for a moment and nothing happens. Keep thinking about them and it hurts. Become obsessed about them and you'll be incapable of doing anything. So have faith in God because if He brought you to it, He will bring you through it :)


Now smile  and have a great day and of course don’t forget to SHARE this post and inspire friends & family!
