Two tulips grew in a pot together. There was a yellow tulip and a red tulip. They had a great life together until a pot with a red rose was placed next to them. The red tulip was very interested in this new, red flower growing next to it. It turned away from the yellow tulip and leaned towards the red rose.
It leaned over and stretched as far as it could reach and finally touched the red rose.
The yellow tulip felt hurt and alone. It stood tall and strong even though it felt awful for being left by the red tulip.
The red tulip tried to stretch and lean even further over to get closer to the red rose.
After all the reaching and leaning, the red tulip snapped at the root. It was broken and had to be removed from the pot never to grow again–neither with the yellow tulip or the red rose.
