He was a very angry young man. His father once gave him a bag full of nails and told him to hammer a nail into a pole every time he got angry.
A dozen nails were nailed on the first day. From the next week, he learned to control his anger little by little, and the number of nails to drive decreased.
I realized that it is easier to control my anger than to nail it.
The day has finally come when I can fully control myself.
His father told the young man to pull a nail out of the stake every time he told his father about it.
Time passed and one day there were no more nails on the post.
When he told his father about this, he humbled him and went to the pole tree:
– You did something good. But do you see how many knots are on the wood of this pole? This tree will never be the same.
Every time a person is told something difficult, such a scar is created in his mind. Then, no matter how many times you ask for forgiveness, the scars remain.
No matter how angry you are, try to find space for reconciliation.
He said, “Words are a powerful weapon that can kill or make a person alive.”
