Nail on a fence

Pernah ada seorang anak kecil yang memiliki temperamen buruk. Ayahnya memberinya sekantong paku dan mengatakan kepadanya bahwa setiap kali ia marah, ia harus memartil paku ke pagar.
There’s a young boy who had a very bad temperament. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him to hammer a nail to the fence each time he felt  angry.
Hari pertama anak itu telah memartil 37 paku ke pagar. Selama beberapa minggu berikutnya dia belajar untuk mengendalikan amarahnya, jumlah paku dipalu secara bertahap berkurang. Ia menemukan lebih mudah untuk menahan amarahnya daripada memartil paku-paku ke pagar. Akhirnya harinya datang ketika anak itu tidak marah sama sekali. Dia mengatakan kepada ayahnya tentang hal itu dan sang ayah menyarankan anak itu sekarang untuk mencabut satu paku setiap ia mampu menahan amarahnya.
At the first day, he had already have 37 nails on that fence. For the next few weeks, he learned to control his anger, and each they it was reduced. Finally the day when he did not angry at all came. He told his father about it and his father told him to pull each nail when he could kept his anger.

Hari-hari berlalu dan anak laki-laki muda itu akhirnya memberitahu ayahnya bahwa semua paku telah dicabut. Sang ayah membawa anaknya dan menuntunnya ke pagar. Dia mengatakan “Kamu telah melakukannya dengan baik, anakku, tapi lihatlah lubang-lubang di pagar ini. Pagar ini tidak akan pernah sama lagi. Ketika kamu mengatakan hal-hal dalam kemarahan, mereka meninggalkan bekas luka seperti ini. Tidak peduli berapa kali kamu bilang maaf, luka tersebut masih ada.”
Days passed and the young boy told his father that all the nails have been pulled. His father took him to that fences. He said, “You did it well, my son, but look at the hole at the fences. They never been the same again. When you say something in your anger, they leave scars like that. No matter how many times you say sorry, that scars are still there.”
Pastikan Anda mengendalikan emosi Anda pada saat Anda tergoda untuk mengatakan sesuatu, karena menyesal kemudian tidaklah mengembalikan keadaan.
Be sure to control your emotion when you tempted to say something on anger, because regret does not make everything as the same again.
