In the fable of the frog and the scorpion, When asked for a ride across the river Froggy refuses saying "You are a Scorpion and will sting." After promises, Froggy agrees to take Scorpion across the river. As they go, Scorpion stings Froggy twice - each time promising not to do it again. With the third sting, Frog asks Scorpion why he did that knowing Froggy will die. Scorpion replies that he stung because he is a scorpion and that is what scorpions do. Both drown. When stung once, ask the other person why they did it. Stung twice - ask yourself why you allowed that again. Like the Scorpion, other people are doing what feels right and may be unable to do differently.
