I read story and I want to share with you girls :::


There was a boy who was always losing his
temper. His father gave him a bag full of 
nails and said to him, “My son, I want you 
to hammer a nail into our garden fence 
every time you need to direct your anger 
against something and you lose your temper
.” 
So the son started to follow his father’s 
advice. On the first day he hammered in 37 
nails, but getting the nails into the fence 
was not easy, so he started trying to 
control himself when he got angry. As the 
days went by, he was hammering in less 
nails, and within weeks he was able to 
control himself and was able to refrain 
from getting angry and from hammering 
nails. He came to his father and told him 
what he had achieved. His father was happy 
with his efforts and said to him: “But now, 
my son, you have to take out a nail for 
every day that you do not get angry.”
The son started to take out the nails for 
each day that he did not get angry, until 
there were no nails left in the fence. 
He came to his father and told him what he 
had achieved. His father took him to the 
fence and said, “My son, you have done 
well, but look at these holes in the fence. 
This fence will never be the same again.” 
Then he added: “When you say things in a 
state of anger, they leave marks like these 
holes on the hearts of others. You can stab 
a person and withdraw the knife but it 
doesn't matter how many times you say ‘I’m 
sorry,’ because the wound will remain.
