The Bridge - A Story of Personal Responsibility
06/27/2011
Icon

Evelyn sent in Edwin H. Friedman's short story, 'The Bridge' from "Friedman's Fables." It is a powerful story about enabling and personal responsibilty.


"There was a man who had given much thought to what he wanted from life. He had experienced many moods and trials. He had experimented with different ways of living, and he had had his share of both success and failure. At last, he began to see clearly where he wanted to go. Diligently, he searched for the right opportunity. Sometimes he came close, only to be pushed away. Often he applied all his strength and imagination, only to find the path hopelessly blocked.


And then at last it came. But the opportunity would not wait. It would be made available only

for a short time. If it were seen that he was not committed, the opportunity would not come

again..."
