One day a teacher asked her students, “Tomorrow, all of you bring some tomatoes in a plastic bag to school but there is condition to how many number of tomatoes each one of you have to bring..”
Students asked, “What is it?”
Teacher replied, “You should give each tomato a name of person you hate and bring number of tomatoes equal to the number of person you hate. If a student hates five people then he had to bring five tomatoes.”
On decided day, Students brought tomatoes as asked and showed them to teacher. Some students had two, some had five, some even had twenty tomatoes in their bag.
Teacher said, “Your this week assignment is that, all of you have to carry these bags fill of tomatoes with you, everywhere you go for whole week.”
As days passed, tomatoes started to lose their freshness and got spoiled and because of this, tomatoes started to smell awful.
After a week, teacher asked student, “How did you feel this one week?”
All students complained of the awful smell and students those who carried more tomatoes complained about heavy weight and smell.
At this teacher smiled and said, “This is very similar to what you carry in your heart. When you don’t like someone, you carry that hatred everywhere and that hatred makes heart unhealthy.
If you can’t bear the smell of spoiled tomatoes for a week, imagine impact of bitterness of hatred on your heart as you carry it daily with you..”
The Heart is a beautiful Garden that needs Regular Cleaning of Unwanted Weeds. Forgive those who have Angered you. This makes Room for Storing good things. Get Better Not Bitter.
