A small boy while playing, once found a cocoon of a butterfly. he took it to his home and watched it daily. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. 
Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared that butterfly had lost all his strength and had no strength left to come out of cocoon farther." data-share-imageurl="http://scholablogs.com/sites/default/files/field/image/butterfly.jpg">

A small boy while playing, once found a cocoon of a butterfly. he took it to his home and watched it daily. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. 
Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared that butterfly had lost all his strength and had no strength left to come out of cocoon farther. 

Then a boy decided to help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. 
The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. 

The boy continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. 

Neither happened ! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly. 

What this boy in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were nature's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon. 

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If nature allowed us to go through your life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. And we could never fly…. 

Helping others is not always taking them out of their problems, but to teach them how to tackle their problems.
Give a man a fish, you feed him for the day. Teach a man how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
