This mother told her daughter to squeeze out all the toothpaste from the tube into a plate. When the daughter did what her mother told her to do, the mother asked her to put the toothpaste back into the tube. The girl shouted at her mother that that is impossible.
“I waited for her to calm down, and then I said to her: You will remember this plate till the end of your life. Your words have power. When you go into a new class, you will have the opportunity to use your words to hurt or offend others. However you will also have the opportunity to use your words to inspire someone.
Sometimes you will choose the wrong path. When the words come out of your mouth, you cannot take them back, just like you cannot put back this toothpaste into the tube. Therefore you need to use your words carefully. And remember you’ll never regret that you chose kindness,” said the mother.
