The Pit

A traveller fell into a deep pit and couldn't get out. Several persons came along and saw him struggling in the pit.

The Sensitive person said: "I feel for you down there"

The reflective person said: "It's logical that someone would fall into the pit."

The aesthetic person said: "I can give you ideas on how to decorate your pit."

The judgmental person said: "Only bad people fall into the pit."

The analytical person said: "Help me measure the depth of your pit."

The curious person said: "Tell me how you fell into the pit."

The perfectionist said: " I believe you deserve your pit."

The evaluator said: "Are you paying taxes on this pit?"

The self-pitying person said: "You should have seen my pit!"

The specialist in mediation said: "Just relax and don't think about the pit."

The optimist said: "Cheer up! Things could be worse."

The pessimist said: "Be prepared. Things will get worse!"

Jesus, seeing the man, took him by the hand and lifted him out of the miserable pit.
