Control Your anger!


Make sure you
read all the way down to the last sentence.

importantly the last sentence)

There     once was
a little boy who had a bad temper.  His Father gave him a bag of nails     and told him that 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
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered     daily
gradually dwindled down.  He discovered it was easier to hold his     temper than to drive those nails into the fence.  Finally the day came     when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

He told his
father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail     for each day that he was able to hold his

  The days
passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the     nails were gone.

The father
took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.  He said, ‘You have     done well, my son, but 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 this one.  You can put a knife in a man and draw it     out.  But It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound     will still be there.  A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Remember that friends are very rare jewels indeed.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed; They lend an ear, they     share words of praise and they always want to open
their hearts to us.

Please forgive me if I have ever left a ‘hole’ in your     fence.
