Mind VS Body

Today, I want to tell you a story. There are two characters- Mind and Body- who are not only the best of friends, but the worst of enemies. Mind lives inside of Body and has an awful lot of control over Body's actions. Unfortunately, Body cannot always do everything Mind wants her to do, and that's where problems arise...

You see, Body is a little bit useless. Without Mind, she can't really do anything. Mind helps Body to function, to work, to live. However sometimes, Mind expects a little too much of Body- she wants her to do actions she is not able to, ones she is simply not capable of doing. This is when Mind gets angry. Body can do it. Mind knows she can. If Mind tries harder, maybe Body will do it? She has to. Mind knows she can.

When Body hears Mind's anger, she is sad. Why can't she do it, why is she so rubbish? Of course she can do it, Mind knows she can. 

"Try Harder"
"Put more effort in"
"Why aren't you trying?"

Mind screams at Body but it makes no difference. Body can't do it, she simply doesn't know how. Maybe if someone was to teach her? But Mind won't allow it. It'll dent her pride. It shows weakness. Everyone will know that she's useless.

Body needs teaching, Mind's hope just isn't enough. If Mind wants to live in a body which serves her demands, she needs to let others in. It isn't Body who needs teaching, it's Mind.
