Control your temper;improve your relationship


Have you ever said something that you later regretted and wish you had not say it at all?It is important to know that our words can really hurt others and can easily ruin our relationship and deprive us of many opportunities.Many are times when we are tempted to speak when if we could keep quite would be more better.The fact is,it is not necessary that you respond to every thing,sometimes keeping quite is the best option.We can learn from this story on what happens when we fail to control our temper.

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 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.

Make sure you control your temper the next time you are tempted to say something you will regret later.

Thats very itching because somehow even me I was caught in my words. It is more difficult to reverse our words than to turn a train
