A lesson on how to reduce the temper and  anger if at all we  are having,

 

Enjoy this Happy reading.

 



 

 
 

NAIL IN THE FENCE    
 




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


 



 
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.
 


 


 

It won't matter how many times you say "I'm
 



 

sorry", the wound is still there.  A verbal
 



 

wound is as bad as a physical one.
 



 

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."
