What fruit are you?
February 11, 2009 1:04am CST
The moderator of a seminar asked us:" If you are a fruit, what would you be?" I described myself as a guava, which can thrive even in adverse conditions, may not have big trunk nor branches but sturdy though pliant to a degree.The fruits come whole year round, smooth and round in the outside but inside is full of hard seeds. My life is similar to it, I can blossom where I am planted, I have inner strength not only for a season, but everyday. I may be plain looking but I have my own usefulness. How about you, what fruit or tree are you most similar? How so?

..Well, I want to be avocado.. this fruit has a big seed inside which represents my heart.. I am a type of person whose heart is easily moved.. I wish i could help everyone that needs help.. and sometimes, when I fail to help people, I feel sad.a An avocado can endure seasons.. This represents how I endure with the different difficulties of life that when it's too hard, I am swayed and has the tendency to broke.. I am sensitive person.. that is the attitude that I want to overcome..

Being sensitive is not a negative quality if used properly. As you said you are easily moved, you are a caring person. Maybe the downside of it is being easily hurt or disappointed. One way to avoid it is to "lower your expectation". I am struggling to learn it myself.

I think I would be a pineapple.. Delicate and sensitive inside, but have thick and tough skin, and have wild free flowing hair like the pineapple top, and when I fall I fall hard, and sometimes hit people on the head on the way down, but once you get through my thick skin, enjoy good sweet juices, and also see that I am exotic... in appearance because I am not afraid to be unique or different as no two pineapples really are exactly alike... I'd make you work hard, to enjoy that sweet reward... As far as tree goes.. I am a big oak tree... I heal fast, I have hidden wisdom, I am strongly set in my ways, have deep roots, and I am prone to lightning strikes, and the carpenter ants like to bite at my bark :).. to feed.. Just as people like to approach me to take advantage of my strength, and hard work ethic, and healing abilities. - DNatureofDTrain
