Once there was a guy that raged very often, got into fights, hurted people.
One day his dad gave him an hammer and some nails and told him:
"Everytime you get angry with someone, instead of raging go in the courtyard and put a nail in the fence"
And so the guy started to do as his father said.
First day he put 50 nails...second week 40 nails, always less and less until one day he stopped to rage and stopped to put nails in the fence, so he went to his dad and asked him what to do now.
His father said:
"Every day that you don't get angry, remove one nail"
And so the guy started doing.
After some years he had passed removing nails he went to his dad in the kitchen.
"Dad, there are no more nails in the fence, now what?"
The dad said: "come with me" and they went together to the courtyard.
"You see the holes in the fence, every one of them is a scar that you left in someone, everytime you do something bad, it doesn't matter if you say sorry, you have hurt someone, remember it."
