Recently, I watched the Disney movie The Fox and The Hound. I learned a lesson that is so true in adult relationships today.
In the story a fox and a hound met when they were both puppies, they became close friends.
The wise owl in the story told the little fox that he would not be able to remain friends with the hound because that is just the way life is. The fox and the hound grew older and remained friends.
Eventually the hound dog’s master took him and trained him to hunt fox.
The hunter came back with his hounds and was hunting the little fox. The older hound dog got hurt, so it was up to the young hound to hunt the little fox.
The story got pretty tense, and I was sure that the little fox was done for. But, the hound had compassion for his friend. He told the little fox, “I have to do my job. I will let you get away this time only”.
Shortly after that the young hound was hurt and the little fox helped his friend.
Even though they truly cared about one another, that was the end of their friendship.
The hound had a duty to his master. It was his job to hunt all fox. He could not remain loyal to his friend and his master.
The life lesson is, relationships sometimes get in the way of our priorities and responsibilities.
As you seek your own success in life, you will have to let go of some of the people you currently call friend.
For the adults who use my articles to encourage the youth in their life.
Let them know that it is not a crime to move on from certain circles. We all know the names, boogie, uppity, forgot where you came from, etc. etc. Moving on is just a part of life.
