A day after purchasing his truck, Peter walked out of his house to admire it. He was surprised to find his son John, aged three, hammering dents into the truck's shiny paint.


Immediately, Peter rushed towards his son and knocked him away. As punishment, he also hammered the little boy's hands into pulp. It was a harrowing experience for John.

In a calmer moment, Peter rushed his son to the hospital. After trying desperately to save the crushed bones, the doctor had no choice but to amputate the fingers from the boy's hands.

When John awoke from surgery, he discovered his bandaged stubs. He then noticed his father sitting beside his hospital bed and apologized instantly for the damage he had caused to his truck.

Besides telling John to forget about the truck, Peter also apologized to his son. A few moments later, John asked when his fingers would grow again. Peter was puzzled about what to tell him.

The father was filled with feelings of sorrow. He felt very sorry for what he did to his son, and he couldn't forgive himself for it. The following night, when he returned home, Peter committed suicide.

It is crucial to think about your actions before losing patience with someone you love. For trucks, it is possible to make repairs, but a broken bone or hurt feelings are usually irreparable.

Even with their bond, a part of him begins to find his son's presence in the house exhausting.

In life, we tend to forget the importance of forgiveness over revenge. While we are all human and make mistakes, the actions we do in a fit of rage haunt us for a lifetime.

Take a moment to reflect. Make sure you consider your actions before you make them. Be patient and give room for forgiveness. Love is all that we need. People who lack patience will die of grief and excitement.

Tony recently felt that Matt should leave the house and move into his own place. Even with their bond, a part of him begins to find his son's presence in the house exhausting.

Having graduated from college, Matt has a good job he does from the comfort of his bedroom. In Tony's opinion, his son should become more independent and responsible.

Almost all of Matt's time was spent in his room with his girlfriend Anne, a college student who lives with them. Tony and his wife, Lea, sometimes find the lovers too noisy, causing them discomfort.
