The longest journey begins with an open Heart

The King of Hyenas

The King of Hyenas

The late king of a certain community had ten wild dogs. He used them to torture and eat any of his servants who made a mistake. One of the servants gave an opinion that was wrong, and the king didn’t like it at all. So he ordered that the servant be thrown to the dogs.

The servant said, “I served you for ten years, and you do this to me? Please give me ten days before throwing me to those dogs!” The king agreed.

In those ten days, the servant went to the guard who looks after the dogs and told him he would like to serve the dogs for the next ten days. The guard was baffled but agreed, and the servant started feeding the dogs, cleaning for them, bathing them, and providing all sorts of comfort for them.

When the ten days were over, the king ordered that the servant be thrown to the dogs for his punishment. When he was thrown in, we were all amazed to see the ravenous dogs only licking the feet of the servant!

The king, baffled at what he was seeing, said,

”What has happened to my dogs?”

The servant replied, "I served the dogs for only ten days, and they didn’t forget my service. Yet I served you for a whole ten years and you forgot all, at my first mistake!"

The king realised his mistake and ordered the servant to be set free.


It almost doesn't pass a day without our dear boy vocally talking about dogs. Beautiful dogs. Hairless dogs. Dogs that obey. Dogs of pray. While I am finding that he would really enjoy having a dogs company a secret worry is endowing with doubts against it. Why? Read more in this story (above)

* something states I'd need to recap on this story

** opp, the story doesn't have anything in common with the relationships described above, but it does with the events happened just recently, and which were ongoing for quite a while (at least a year). So between the two paralleled, they actually have something in common.


There are bullies who are prone to take from others for what they do not have and have an impossibility ingrained in their character to not see what they really want. Bullies want the opposite. And that's what they remind us of: Be aware what you wish for as that, one day, might get true.

Acceptance, and love that is missed, are hard to compliment later on with anything. There's no replacement. No satisfaction. Bullies, on the other side, are complacent with the other, servile character, that upholds bullying dynamics.

Without the two, one is impossible. Without one, the two doesn't exist. But if only one, there need to be at least three.
