Spin the hard-boiled egg on a table.
While it is spinning, put your finger on it to stop it and notice what happens.
Spin the fresh egg exactly like you did the hard-boiled egg, putting your finger on it to stop it. Does it react the same way as the hard-boiled egg?
Now spin the fresh egg slowly, put your finger on the top of it to stop it and then quickly let it go. The egg will start spinning again and keep turning by itself.
The two eggs do not spin and stop the same. The hard-boiled egg spins as hard as you spin it and stops when you stop it. The harder you spin the fresh egg, the harder it is to spin easily. Why? It has to do with what’s inside. The liquid spinning inside the egg pulls against the shell making it more difficult to move as expected.
When you get along with your friends, you are like the hard-boiled egg that spins and stops just as expected. You are dependable. The fresh egg is like someone who you can’t depend on because of what is going on inside them.
