😠 Short Story: The Silence of Serenity
In a bustling town, there lived a wise elder known for his calm demeanor. One day, a passionate young man confronted him, overwhelmed by anger. The elder, sensing the storm within, calmly said, "In anger, the greatest power lies in silence."
Intrigued, the young man questioned, "But should I not express my anger?"
The elder replied, "Express, but not in the heat of the moment. Retreat into silence, let the tempest within settle, and then express from a place of clarity. In this pause, you find the strength to choose your words and actions wisely."
The young man, following the elder's advice, discovered that the silence of serenity held more power than the tumultuous expression of anger.
