Scorpion wants to cross a river, but he
can’t swim. Goes to the frog, who can,
and asks for a ride. Frog says, “If I
give you a ride on my back, you’ll go and
sting me.” Scorpion replies, “It would
not be in my interest to sting you since
as I’ll be on your back we both would
drown.” Frog thinks about this logic for
a while and accepts the deal. Takes the
scorpion on his back. Braves the waters.
Halfway over feels a burning spear in his
side and realizes the scorpion has stung
him after all. And as they both sink
beneath the waves the frog cries out,
“Why did you sting me, Mr. Scorpion, for
now we both will drown?” Scorpion
replies, “I can’t help it, it’s in my
In this scenario I am the Frog. I am also I admit a tad stupid as multiple times I have found myself being stung by the same Scorpion.
One of the stupidest things I had done in 2014 was swap an Aries for a Scorpion and the second was to continuously self harm myself by going back to this scorpion for more stings after each wound had healed.
I don’t blame the Scorpion as per the above analogy it was just in their nature and the more I tried to rationalise our situation and try to understand what my problem was (because I must have a problem for me to keep going back) I realised it wasn’t just me but that person too.
That Scorpio was at war with themselves and I had got caught up in the cross fires.
They were on their own journey of discovery and because we seemingly had that in common we thought fate had brought us together.
We were wrong. A Scorpion and a Frog can’t be friends.
Every now and then I still find myself in these tiresome, drama-filled, heart breaking situations.
Too be perfectly frank I’ve come to realise I’m in this horrible loop & fall for the same trap of befriending bitches!
Sad but true but I’m hoping that’s the last time. Probably not as it’s life and I’m beginning to feel really morbid about the world and especially the people who live in it. I feel like the bad people, hurtful people & sick people etc out weigh the good, kind and caring.
However the good thing that has come out of the situation is how I realised my mistake of befriending and giving chances to people I really shouldn’t be giving chances to because it’s not in their nature or personality to change.
Now I can see where I have been going wrong I can swiftly move on.
There’s no more room for self harm, scorpions or bitches in my life.
I’m running out of forgiveness for such people, fed up of making excuses for them and I’m certainly done with apologising for my own emotions.
These sort of people show no mercy for what you have to say or feel because the ones I have had been unfortunate to get involved with have been self centred and selfish. What does not benefit them angers them to the point of no return.
The Scorpion woman I was entangled with is similar to the Aries women I got burnt by.
Like an Aries it’s “their way or the highway”.
As an Aquarius I don’t conform so in conclusion we are all best left to our own devices.
Side Note: Although I famously don’t get on with Aries women I do have a love for so deep for one of my friends “Lady of Milky a Darkness” you know I’m talking about you who is an Aries woman so different from all the rest that I’ve been friends with for years.
