Saying Or Doing Hurtful Things Will Always Leave A Scar...

#Saying Or Doing Hurtful Things
# Will Always Leave A Scar
# Encourage
# Support


The story continues of the result of a young man who, though he was talented, creative, handsome and extremely bright - was always angry.

 

His father gave him this assignment to curb his anger: “Whenever you lose your temper, I want you to really let it out. Just take a nail and drive it into the oak boards of that old fence out back. Hit that nail as hard as you can; then, you get to pull out one nail each day that you don’t lose your temper even once.”

 

The day came when the boy didn't lose his temper; however, as he pulled out the nails, he left holes in the fence. Things would never be the same when holes or scars are left...

 

Saying or doing hurtful things in anger produces the same kind of result. There will always be a scar. It won’t matter how many times you say you’re sorry, or how many years pass, the scar will still be there. And a verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 

People are much more valuable than an old fence. They make us smile. They help us succeed. Some will even become friends who share our joys and support us through our sadness. And, if they trust us, they will also open their hearts to us. That means we need to treat everyone with love and respect. We need to prevent as many of those scars as we can.

 

A most valuable lesson to learn, and a reminder that most of us need from time to time. Everyone gets angry occasionally. The real test is what we DO with it. If we are wise, we will spend our time building bridges rather than barriers in our relationships.
