Hi Shara! This is a very interesting topic. I love history very much. And I have read a lot of historical documents about my country and the countries near it. One of the strangest and most beautiful story in the folklore of my country is legend about Danko. Danko was a young man who lived in one of forest tribe. One day his tribe got into trouble, and they had to get quickly out of the forest, but it was night and it wasn't the moon on the sky. It was raining and they couldn't make a fire. It was so dark that they couldn't find any trace. The women and children started to cry and the men lowered their hands in impotence. And then, Danko ripped his heart out of his chest and his heart shone like a little sun. He told his fellow tribesmen to follow him and after a while they came out of the forest. But by that time Danko was already too weak and he dropped his body on the ground and the heart hit the earth. It's radiance began to fade. And when it almost disappeared, some of the people approached and stepped on it with his foot, extinguishing it completely. It became dark again, but people moved on and Danko's body remained lying on the outskirts of the forest.
I often thought about things what motivate that man to step the heart. And only one think come in my mind. He was afraid. Danko was so different from them, that they preferred to forget him immediately. Your patients are afraid to be different. They prefer to wear simiar masks so you won't be out of practice for long time.
Have a nice day and thank you for possibility to remember this beautiful story.
