Default A wonderful story that you can learn from

My teacher was telling the boys (yes, I'm a boy) a story about gossiping. (we have a gossiping problem lol) I liked the story a lot, and hoope you can learn from it. (it is not true)


There once was a little girl who gossiped. Her father gave her a bag of nails and told her that every time she spread gossip, she must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the girl drove 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as she learned to control her tongue, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. She discovered it was easier to hold her tongue than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally, the day came when the girl didn't gossip at all. She told her father about it and he suggested that she now pull out one nail for each day that she was able to hold her tongue and only say nice comments. The days passed, and the girl was finally able to tell her father that all the nails were gone. The father took his daughter by the hand and led her to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my daughter, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say hurtful things, 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." A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are very rare jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care.
