Many spotted toads made their home in a picturesque valley. Multiple colorful patches on their bodies brought them widespread fame. The toads lived in harmony with the other inhabitants of the valley, including the birds, rabbits, and deer.
Timmy, a juvenile spotted toad, decided one day that he wanted to stand out from the crowd. He wanted more than anything to be the valley's biggest and best-known toad. He then went on a mission to amass a collection of the most vivid and eye-catching dots. He rubbed them all over himself, beaming with pride.
However, the other toads did not appreciate Timmy's new look. To them, he came across as naive and awkward, and he drew unwanted attention to himself. Timmy didn't give a hoot; he liked his new appearance and reasoned that the other toads were jealous.
One day, a group of hunters came to the valley. The frightened toads quickly ran away, but Timmy was an easy target because of his brightly colored patches. He was bottled up and put on display as a pet after his capture.
The other toads were first angered at Timmy's capture, but they ultimately realized they had been right about him. Timmy's desire to stand out had put him in danger, so they learned it was better to blend in and stay safe than to stand out and risk getting captured.
The toads avoided attention by keeping a low profile, and they went on to have quiet, thrifty lives. While Timmy had once taken great pride in his unique characteristics, he now craved for a chance to disappear among his fellow toads. The beauty of the spotted toads, he realized, did not lie in the variety of their hues, but in the unity and harmony that existed among them.
Accept yourself as you are and don't try to change for anyone else; it's better to fit in than to stand out.
