Boiling Frog Syndrome - The boiling frog story is a widespread anecdote describing a frog slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually.
Boiling Frog Syndrome - The frog started off happily in the pot, loving life. He did not know about the burner underneath, he did not know that the heat was being turned up higher and higher, the changes were not felt and were gradual. When the frog realized his situation, it was very difficult to react or respond. It is a great analogy for my experience with abuse. " ~Blind
