It was the coldest winter ever and many animals were dying because of the cold.
The Hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep themselves warm. This way they covered and protected themselves from the harsh climate; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
After a while, they decided to distance themselves from each other to avoid getting hurt. Slowly, they began to die, alone and frozen. So the hedgehogs then had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire and focus on the other person’s good qualities.
Just like the Hedgehogs, you can choose ignore the shortcomings of your spouse and focus on the value they bring to your life and be happy or choose to focus on the hurt they cause to you and become sulky which would only make you feel trapped in an unhappy union
