Spread Love not Hatred

Once upon a time there was a little boy who had a very bad temper
His father gave him a bag of nails and told him every time he lost his temper ,he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.
The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next week he learned to control his anger and the nails that he hammered were less. He discovered that it was easy to hold his temper  than drive those nails into the fence.
Finally the day came when he didn’t lose his temper at all . He told this to his father and his father suggested him that the boy now pulls one nail everyday when he doesn’t get angry or the day he holds his temper.
Days passed by and the boy  told his father  that he pulled out all the nails and the wall was the same like before. Then the  father held his hand and led him towards  the fence .The father said ‘’you have done well my son but look at the fence its not like before look at the holes in the fence’’.
The fence will never be the same .When you say things in anger  they leave a scar just like the holes in the fence. You can put a knife in a mans heart and draw it out. It will not make a difference if you say sorry  million times because the scar will always be there on the person heart who the knife had hurt .But the person who put the knife will have no scar in the long run.
A verbal wound is as bad as physical one  so think before you wound someone heart with your words.
