Is It Necessary To Cling On to Your Emotional Pain? | A Short Motivational Story

Let me tell you a real story.

This happened in 1941, it’s just when the Nazi movement was building up in Germany and in some parts of Europe.

So, one day in Austria, a bunch of German soldiers came, broke into the homes. These soldiers broke the home of a Jewish family, a rich family and took away the adults, and everything was robbed.

And, they also took away the two children- a twelve year old girl and a eight year old boy and they were taken to a railway station. That was the end of November when it’s becoming very cold. So they were kept in the railway station for three days because the trains did not come.

Little boys started playing football. When they were playing football , suddenly the train came. The train was not a passenger train, it was a cargo train, the goods train.

So, when the train came, the soldiers came and rushed everybody into the wagons which were there. Everybody got in and the little boy and the girl also got in. But the little boy forgot to wear his shoes, he left his shoes outside and they pushed him into the wagon. So, without shoes he came.

His sister, a twelve year old girl, saw her kid brother coming without shoes and she got mad at him. She held him by the ear, boxed his ears, scolded him nicely, slapped him. She said, ‘you idiot, already we are in enough trouble and now you come without shoes.’

Because in Germany, in winter, no shoes means you may lose your feet. So, she was angry about that. In the next station, the boys and girls were separated.

After four years, after the war was over, she came out of the concentration camp to find seventeen members of her family including her little brother. All had vanished, no records, no sign of them, they just evaporated.

At that moment, the only thing that bothered her was the last few things that she said to her little brother. She loves her brother but the last few things that she said to him were such terrible things, it rang in her mind and troubled her. Those were the last things she told her brother and after that she was never going to see him, he was gone.

After that she took a vow that ‘If I speak to anybody in my life, I will speak in such a way as if this is my last word, so that I will not regret later.’

This one thing transformed her life in such a way that she went on to the United States, she did some phenomenal work, built a hospital and she lived a fruitful life.

Remember one thing that even if you are put through the most horrible situations, either you can come out using that experience as a better human being or you can use the experience to become a horrible mess!

So, whenever something hurts you, there are two options, you can either become wounded or you can become wise, this is completely your choice.

The more things hurt you early on in your life, the wiser you should have become, isn't it? But unfortunately, most people become wounded. This is simply because they just need an excuse to turn their own intelligence against themselves, that’s all.

Especially if the world around you turns against you, is it not very, very important that your intelligence stands up for you?

So, friends, it is very necessary to support yourself when you are emotionally hurt. Now onwards don’t regret anything and stand up for yourself, help yourself to overcome your pain. Think hundred times before going to hurt anyone through your harsh words, who knows, he may or may not meet you in the future.
