The ship that was scared at sailing

This is a story of ocean, ship and water.

Moral(s) of the story: courage and trust

There was a newly born ship called Hilda. She was new, talented and beautiful.

But there was one problem due to which she had never travelled before. Hilda was scared of sailing in the ocean. She was scared that she would not be able to stay afloat and would sink.

This is why Hilda always stayed in the docks. She wished to be as brave as the other ships, she wished to play in the waves of the ocean, to chase after the sun, to laugh with the dolphins but she could not.

One day a new Captain came to the dock. He looked at Hilda once and was absolutely mesmerised. He wanted to take Hilda into the sea.

Hilda looked at him sadly and refused, thinking he would go away like all other skippers did.

But this Captain sat besides Hilda and said, “Why won’t you sail?” Hilda replied embarrassed, “Because I am scared.”

The skipper smiled, “There is little to be scared of, you are amazing and need to be confident in yourself. If you face any problems I will always protect you.”

Hilda was not so convinced so the sailor said, “How about we go a little into the sea and then come back? We can repeat this everyday until you are comfortable.”

Hilda excitedly agreed.

At first she was very timid and unsure if she would be able to sail. But the skipper was always there to encourage her. In the beginning they went slowly, and not very far. Later, Hilda slowly gained confidence and was ready to venture further. The skipper was very proud of her!

That is how Hilda slowly built confidence in herself and one day she finally finished a whole trip with many happy passengers. She was no longer scared and she had faith in herself.


Moral:

Sometimes we only need someone to trust in us so that we can trust in ourselves.
