2. A Story That Tells How To Control Your Anger

Once upon a time, there lived a little boy named Jonas in a small town. He used to lose his temper very quickly and become angry. When he became angry, he would just say anything that came to his mind and hurt people. He would scold kids, neighbors, and even his friends. Once his father saw Jonas fighting with his own brother in a fit of rage.

He became worried about the short-tempered nature of his son and started thinking about how to improve him. He came up with a trick. One day he called Jonas and said, “Dear son, you really have a very short temper, why don’t you try to control it.”

Jonas said, “Dad, I really want to get rid of my temper but do not know how. His father gave him a bag of nails and a hammer. Then he said, “I have a plan for it. Every time you get angry, hammer one nail into the fence in our backyard”.

The boy agreed and took the bag full of nails. The first day the boy had driven 50 nails into the fence post. Over the next few days, the boy hammered so many nails that he emptied half the bag but after that, his enthusiasm started waning.

And over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. Then came a day when he didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it.

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 in people’s minds just like this one.

And no matter how many times you apologize, they never fully heal. Jonas realized his mistake and never lost his temper again.

Moral of The Story: Anger is a dangerous weapon like a knife. When you put a knife in a man and draw it out, the wound heals but the scar remains.

The truth is that you are ruled by your anger. It controls you whenever it wants. Therefore, you are my slave’s slave… Now tell me… Aren’t you?”

Alexander was stunned to hear Saint’s words. His pride of being a great warrior, being a conqueror was shattered in a moment. He bowed reverently before him and returned from there.

Anger Story That’ll Inspire Students To Get Success

Ravi was preparing to go to school. As he was getting late, so he quickly sat on the chair to have breakfast. As soon as he picked up the glass to drink milk, suddenly his younger sister Priya came there. Her hand mistakenly touched the glass of milk and the milk spilled over Ravi’s uniform. Due to this his shirt and trousers got dirty.

“Oh……no! Look, what have you done? Can’t you see and walk?” he shouted at Priya. His face turned red with anger. Priya regretted her mistake and apologized but Ravi was getting late so he left from there without saying anything.

He cleaned the spilled milk on his uniform with water and immediately ran towards the bus honking outside the house. The bus driver scolded him for coming late and then the bus proceeded to school. When Ravi’s class teacher came into the class, all the children stood up to greet her.

Since Ravi was sitting at the front desk in the class, the teacher’s attention fell on him. He looked at Ravi’s shirt carefully and asked him how his shirt got dirty. When Ravi looked at his shirt, he found that it had not been cleaned properly.

Along with the splashes of milk, the wrinkles were clearly visible on his uniform. When he told the whole incident to the teacher, Sir did not say anything. But when the classes were over, some children started making fun of him because of his dirty uniform.

Ravi shouted at them loudly. Today he was very distressed due to all these incidents. He blamed Priya for his insult. He had decided that today he would go home and scold Priya a lot. When Ravi returned home he was full of anger.

He looked at Priya and scolded her and said many harsh things. Due to a lack of control over his anger, he also threw Priya’s book down from the table. Priya stood there silently and kept weeping. After some time his mother called him to eat.

When Ravi reached there, he saw that his mother had prepared Khichdi. Today Ravi wanted to eat something special. When he saw Khichdi, he said angrily to his mother, “What Mom, every day you cook such useless food. Last night I asked you to make Dosa. I don’t want to eat such food.”

How Ravi’s Father Taught Him A Valuable Lesson

But seeing today’s events he decided to convince Ravi. His father came quietly to his room. Ravi was lying in his room and reading something. “How was your day, dear?” Ravi’s father asked him lovingly. Then Ravi told him the entire incident that happened at home and school.

His father listened to his words with great attention. Then he calmly said, “Spilling milk was just an accident. You became angry because you felt that you incurred a loss and were embarrassed to go to school in a crumpled uniform. But have you never spilled anything in your life before?

And then you felt insulted because you were mocked by your classmates. But, tell me, what was the fault of your sister and mother? You were burning with anger and you threw Priya’s notebook and hurt her. Then you exploded on Mummy because you didn’t get Dosa for dinner.

You know Ravi, a person becomes angry when things don’t go his way and such a person burns from within and then hurts others. Do you like to burn?” Ravi mumbled, “No, Papa. I don’t like that feeling at all. But what should I do now?”

“You should ask for forgiveness from Priya and Mummy because you have hurt them with your anger and you should resolve never to get angry again”. Papa said. Ravi realized his mistake and instantly asked for forgiveness and decided strongly not to get angry again with anybody.

Moral of The Story: Uncontrolled anger always proves harmful as it can lead to arguments, physical fights, physical abuse, assault, and self-harm. When you become angry with people and hurt them, you create problems for them as well as for yourself. We are unacceptable when angry and deserve rejection.

Anger management techniques and anger management therapy are the two best practices that people follow in dealing with anger problems. Sometimes during certain life situations, we react with anger not realizing that we are only hurting ourselves.

In life, it’s better to sometimes ignore situations, people, and their behavior. People say and do things but it’s our decision whether to react positively or negatively.
