   掉进深坑中的两只青蛙在竭力往外爬,坑外的其它青蛙劝它们不要徒劳。一只青蛙听取了劝告,葬身在坑中;另一只青蛙因耳聋误以为伙伴们在鼓励自己,最终奇迹般地爬出了深坑。
    If you are human, you can’t help but experience times when everything seems to be going wrong and you feel as if your life is completely out of control. It is during those “down times” that words of encouragement from family, friends, co-workers or even strangers can boost (增强) your spirits. It is also during those times that destructive words can be devastating (毁灭性的) and sink you deeper and deeper into depression.
     For example, consider this story about a group of frogs who were traveling through the woods when two of them fell into a deep pit (坑). All of the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two unfortunate frogs they would never get out. 
     The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump out of the pit. The other frogs kept telling them to stop. Finally, one of the frogs took heed of what the other frogs were saying and simply gave up. He fell down and died. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again the crowd of frogs shouted at him to stop the pain. The more they shouted, the harder he jumped and finally he made it to safety.
    When he got out, the other frogs asked him why he continued to jump when they were all shouting at him to simply quit. The frog explained to them that he was a little bit deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
