Have you ever heard of the story of the boiled frog?
It goes like this …
Put a frog into a pot of boiling water, and it jumps right out. But if you put it in a pot of nice comfortable water and then turn on the heat, the frog will complacently let himself be boiled.
In essence, it is a story about a gradual change in circumstances or conditions that slowly get worse as time goes on and you don’t notice until it becomes intolerable.
