Today I am going to tell you a story, it can be taken from real facts or it can be a product of the imagination.

It follows:
Ana lives in a beautiful country house. A humble and hard-working woman. A single mother of a son who is studying economics at the university in the city. As a means of producing income, she tries her hand at making homemade jams from the fruit she buys at the village market. And she begins to promote her jam among her neighbors in the countryside.

Disconnected from the world, she only dedicates herself to making and selling delicious jams to the people of the village and near her country house.

Ana is interested in publicizing her business because her neighbors tell her that the jams she sells are very delicious.

She begins to place her own advertisements in several places in the village when she goes to buy the fruits. And so she increases her sales with the people of the village. Every day she becomes more and more popular for her delicious homemade jams.

 Ana is very happy because her business is growing. Now when she goes to the market she chooses the best fruits. At one point she had to buy in bulk the glass containers in which she put the jams. The business was thriving. His jams were the best in town.

Eventually, Ana supported financially his son who was about to finish his studies in economics at the university. Soon after, her son, who had already graduated with honors, returned to his mother's house and noticed that his mother continued with the same business, and honoring her profession as an economist, asked her:

Mom, don't you listen to the radio? don't you watch television? don't you connect to the social networks? there is a great crisis in the world because of the Pandemic! and the situation in our country is critical, everything is bad and the country is going bankrupt!

After listening to her son's considerations, Ana thought: - Well, if my son is an economist, who is connected to social networks, and also watches TV news, maybe he is right.

Ana, for fear of the crisis, when she went to the market she chose the cheapest fruits, the ones that were on sale because they were already overripe. To continue to economize, she changed the glass containers where she put the jams for plastic bags. And she stopped advertising with the posters she placed in the market.
Devastated by the news of the crisis, Ana did not offer her products as before, nor did she enthusiastically serve her customers in town.

When she took all these precautions, the sales of the jams began to decline and fell and fell and reached unbearable levels, where she no longer had the money to continue buying the fruits and plastic bags. The homemade jam business, which used to be the best in town and generated a good income, even enough to support her son in college, finally went bankrupt.

Then Ana, very sad, said to her son:
-Son, you were right, we are in the middle of a big crisis.

End of story.

In today's story, Everyone builds their own crises, which is a way of reflection, so that each of us can draw our own conclusions.

It's sad that Ana ended up like that, when in fact she was already connected with the world around her, growing and building her own business, indeed it is that we build our own crisis if we aren't wise and firm enough. :(

true what you say. Ana was not wise and firm enough. Her decision was based on the opinion of others, and not on her own criteria. It happens very often, more than we think. Interesting your comment, thank you my friend.

Ana was so disconnected from the world in the way her son was connected that she failed to see how connected and thriving she was as she did good business. So very sad. And shame on the boy for the opportunity he took away from his mother.

Ana was disconnected from the world, it is true, but she missed her opportunity to continue to prosper by following her son's advice. Sometimes we have missed opportunities and created crises by getting carried away by other people. Ana let herself go, even when she was disconnected from the world. Thank you friend, your comments are always timely.

True what you say, but it usually happens more than we think, in our personal relationships. How many times to hear a comment like: you are very fat, or think better before doing such a thing ... and so on, multiple comments that influence a person, to change their environment and mood, and if it is low self-esteem is worse your mood. Thank you, I really appreciate you reading and commenting.

And it all happened because he got carried away with a personal comment. If he hadn't listened to her, he would still be running a successful business.

Exactly, sister. You could see it clearly. That's right, sometimes by letting ourselves get carried away by others, we give up good opportunities in life. I love you very much.

Excellent story to ponder, my friend! Many times by not making the right decision by ignorance, we end in a bad situation.

That's right. the external situation in this case had no great influence on her, in fact she ignored it completely, but her whole crisis started, until she made a bad decision, letting herself be influenced by the opinion of others, Not following her own instincts was her mistake. Interesting your reflection of the story. Thank you my friend.
