Once there was a boy with a difficult character... His father gave him a bag of nails and told him to hit one in the garden fence every time he lost his patience or had an argument with somebody.
The first day he hit 37 nails in the fence. The next days he learned how to control himself and the number of nails he hit in the fence decreased day by day. He found out that it was easier to control himself than to hit the nails in the fence.
Finally the day came he didn’t have to hit any nail in the fence and he ran to his father to tell him the news.
His father told him that every day he didn’t lose his patience he could pull one nail out of the fence. Days passed by and finally he could bring the news to his father that there were no more nails in the fence.
The father took the boy to the fence and said : « my son, you did well but look at all the holes in the fence ».
The fence will never be as before. Whenever you hurt someone it has the same effect as you can see at the fence..
Whenever you put a knife in someones back and pull it out, it leaves a wound. A verbal wound hurts as much as a physical wound. Friends are like jewels, they make you laugh and encourage you. They are willing to listen if you want, they support you and open your heart. Show your friends how much you love them.
Send this letter to those whom you consider friends.
« the beauty of friendship is that you know who you can tell a secret to » (Alessandro Manzoni)
