Sand and Stone

Sand and Stone

This story tells of two friends walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand:

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, and now, you write on a stone. Why "

The other friend replied,
"When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand, where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. When someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone, where no wind can ever erase it."

Learn to write your hurts in sand, and to carve your benefits in stone

True everlearner, Even if you don't hurt others it doesn't guarantee that the reverse will not happen. There are many mean and ungrateful people who make your life miserable. Just write your feelings in the sand and get done with it. Brooding over it doesn't help and it is you who gets the ulcers and not they.

Thanks for the story.

Absolutely wonderful story.
I totally agree.
I acted in this way in the past and I can say that it has been the best solution: I kept one of my best friends and now our friendship is better than ever. :heart:
