The following anger stories help you to have a more objective perspective so that you realize that temper tantrums often make it easy for us to make serious mistakes that we don't even think about.
1. The king was angry at a puppet
Once upon a time, a puppeteer had puppets as a means of livelihood to help him make ends meet. In particular, the puppet is made of wood which is quite sophisticated and looks like a real person, he even wears beautiful clothes for it to make the puppet look very charismatic.
In each performance, people thought that it knew how to dance and sing, but it was actually the artist's lyrics and he controlled all the puppet's movements smoothly and rhythmically in harmony with the singing. People never stopped admiring and did not regret the reward for him when watching the puppet performance.
The good news spread far away, the King knew about it, so he wanted to invite artists to the palace to perform. On the day the artist shows his talent, the king and queen sit on the high floor and look down to enjoy together.
Both of them were also excited to see that the puppet had even better dance moves than the real person. But unfortunately, during the performance, the wooden man often turned towards the Queen, causing the King to think that the wooden man was paying attention to the Queen.
He was angry and jealous when he saw the performance, he looked like a puppet all the time, only turning to look at the queen, the King shouted angrily:
- Why do puppets keep looking at the Queen all day, cut off the wooden puppet's head because they have bad intentions.
The artist was worried, cried, and knelt down to ask the king to spare the puppet:
- I only have this one puppet to make a living, I don't dare think it has such a wrong action. If your majesty cuts off its head, then I have no tools to earn money. May your majesty be blessed and forgive him.
The king was in a rage, so he did not listen to the artisan and insisted on asking the executioner to execute the puppet according to the king's order. The artist continued to beg:
- If Your Majesty is determined to cut off its head and not let it live, please allow this body to kill it with your own hands.
The king consented. The artist then pulled a pin from the puppet's shoulder, and immediately all the puppet's parts fell apart into a pile of pieces of wood that fell to the ground. Seeing this, the king was amazed and said:
- Oh, I am stupid to be angry with a pile of wood chips like this.
The story of the king's anger shows that even as a wise man, it is easy to make bad decisions when angry without thinking long enough to understand how wrong we are.
2. The snake was angry because it was occupied
A snake feels sorry for itself when all year round, month-round struggling to make a living in the field. It can't stand the harsh weather anymore, so it wants to move into a human's house.
He left the field and went to the village blacksmith's house, thinking that it would be cool in the day and warm in the evening, and there would be plenty of food.
Just moved to a new house, so snakes find everything strange. He excitedly walked around the house until he discovered another snake lying on the table looking very relaxed.
He approached to observe and saw that the snake was not alarmed by its presence, neither curled up nor raised its neck, just lying in one place.
Angry that someone came first and took his place, the snake because he did not want to return to the field, decided to chase the other snake away. It curled up, craned its neck and bared its sharp teeth, but it didn't seem to scare the snake.
Seeing the child that there is no reaction to it but still lying still, it even more angry to rush to and bite the opponent. It tried to grab the other snake but was unable to bite the opponent's scales. No matter how it bared its teeth, the opponent wouldn't react.
It didn't stop attacking until its teeth were gradually broken. Only later did it realize that its opponent was not a real snake but a long snake-shaped file. It feels very regretful.
3. Anger and narcissism make crows never sing
Once upon a time, all the birds in the forest could not sing. One day, a nightingale came flying out of nowhere. The nightingale sings very well, its melodious and melodious voice makes all the animals in the forest flutter.
So all the birds agreed to invite the nightingale to teach them to sing. Unable to refuse your earnest pleas, the nightingale accepted.
On the first day, the nightingale decided to teach singing. It sings a song, other birds sing along with it. After teaching for a while, the nightingale wanted to check the learning situation of the students, so they asked each child to stand up and sing.
Crows are assigned first. It timidly stood up and gave a small chirping sound. Because the crow is too shy, the notes it emits are out of tune. All the birds present laughed. The crow was so ashamed that his face turned purple, he thought to himself: “Oh! It's so embarrassing! I'm afraid to die!"
The nightingale prevents other birds from laughing. To correct the crow's error, it invites the crow to sing loudly again. The crow thought to himself, “Isn't this deliberately embarrassing me? I don't want to be embarrassed again!"
Filled with anger, it flew away silently. From then on, it never went to the nightingale's classroom again.
Then the nightingale told the other birds to sing. Lots of birds are as buggy as crows. They mispronounce at first and are also mocked by other species. However, those birds did not fly away like crows but stayed to learn from experience, diligently listen to the instructions of the nightingale, patiently continue to study.
Later, all the birds in the forest could sing. They harmonize together to create really fun music. Only crows until now still can't sing, sometimes calling out a few out-of-voice sounds like the old days.
4. In anger, he killed the wrong falcon that wanted to protect himself
Early that morning, the Great Khan, the great emperor and bravest warrior of the Mongolian steppe, and the warlords and courtiers rode into the forest to start a new hunting trip.
The forest was quiet every day, suddenly today it was filled with laughter, the sound of horses' hooves, the sound of dogs barking. On his wrist was a falcon that he loved so dearly.
In those days, falcons were trained to hunt. Just hearing the owner's command, the bird soars high and looks around in search of prey. If it detects deer or rabbits, it will swoop down like arrows and attack them.
The sun was beginning to recede behind the mountains, but the Great Khan and his entourage had yet to catch as many prey as expected. Eager, the Great Khan spurred his horse forward to separate from the group. While everyone continued to follow the old path, he chose the longer route, running through the valley between two mountain ranges.
After many hours of riding on horseback in the heat of a summer afternoon, the Great Khan began to feel thirsty. The falcon sprang from his wrist and darted away, believing it would find its way back.
Suddenly he saw water seeping from a cliff. The Great Khan dismounted, took a small silver cup from his hunting bag, and went over to catch the dripping water. He was patient and knew that it would take a long time for the glass to fill up.
His mouth was bitterly thirsty, so he did not have time to wait for the glass to be full, he quickly brought it to his mouth to prepare to drink. Suddenly, a sound shot up from the air and an object crossed his hand, the glass falling to the ground. It turned out to be his beloved falcon. The falcon flew back and forth a few more times, then dropped its wings and perched among the cliffs by the creek.
The Great Khan picked up the glass and once again put it in to catch every drop. This time he did not wait any longer. When he had nearly half a glass, he raised the glass to his mouth, but before the cup touched his lips, the falcon flew down again and dropped the glass of water from his hand.
The Great Khan began to get angry. He continued again, and a third time the falcon knocked over the glass of water. The Great Khan was very angry and shouted:
- You damn animal, how dare you do that? Don't let me catch you, or I'll twist your neck!
And then he picked up another glass of water. This time, before bringing it to his mouth to drink, he drew the sword he was holding in his hand. He said, "This is the last time or I will kill you."
As soon as he finished his sentence, the bird rushed down and threw a glass of water. The king got angry and slashed at the bird, thinking it was too insolent.
When the glass fell between two rocks and he couldn't reach it, he said to himself, "I will drink from the spring". And he began to climb the steep rocky slope, upstream to the stream.
When he arrived, the stream he thought was actually just a small puddle, but the object in it caused the water to overflow. And it was this thing that really frightened the Great Khan: a large snake, known for its venom, lying dead in a pool of water.
The Great Khan paused, forgetting the burning thirst in his throat. It hurt him to think of his recent actions, the momentary anger that made him swing his sword and kill his beloved bird - just because it wanted to save his life. Since then, the image of a falcon dying in a pool of blood has always reminded him never to do anything in anger that scares others away.
