Let us introspect this time about our own self and the most effective enhancer and killer in us is our own temperament. May it be nice or lose. We earn a lot in the life through nice temperament and also the patience of an individual is based on it only. At the same time we cannot ignore lose temperament as it destroys us as an individual and more over we must let everyone know about bad effects of the lose temperament especially to our kids and our children , I remember few lines about the temperament read somewhere as,
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 the temper, he must hammer a nail into 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 no of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered that it is easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence…. Finally the day came when the boy did not 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 the 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 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 am sorry, the wound is still there”. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.
Let us think and see around about it.
