Life’s Lessons from Humpty Dumpty

You definitely know this if you were required to memorize nursery rhymes when you were a kid. Who would ever imagined a nugget of truth embedded behind those lines

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

A lot of people claim that they’re on a slump, having a bad day, just fortunately unfortunate and everything else they can think of. They blame their misfortunes to life itself and expect the situation or somebody else to help them bounce back and pick them up. Sad to say, we are the only ones who can help us. And that’s a fact. Not the king’s horses nor his men.

And if I were to add a second part to this nursery rhyme, here’s probably what I’ll write

Had Humpty Dumpty realized the fact
That nobody else can help him get back
He’d probably think twice on sitting atop the wall
Or design a nice armor so he’ll survive the fall

We all fall in a slump or a ditch every now and then. No one’s exempted. But make sure you make that decision to bounce back in because no one else can help you do that but yourself
