Don't Hold Your Problems Too Long, it's painful !!!

It’s become my habits that 1st thing in the morning when I reached my office is to read through all the e-mails in my inbox. This morning, my attention was attracted to one e-mail send by the name who had been drawn form my address box for quite sometimes. I just wondering… what made him to send me an e-mail! Normally, I just delete any e-mail from him as I feel it’s too disgusting! I don’t know why, my heart was very attracted to read his e-mail this time! It reads like this:-

When you leave you office today
Study this small story,
Hope that makes a BIG change in YOU !!!!

Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it.
He held it up for all to see & asked the students
“How much do you think this glass weighs?”
'50gms!' .... '100gms!' .....'125gms' …the students answered.
“I really don't know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is:
What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”
“Nothing” …..the students said.
“Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?” the professor asked.
“Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the student”
“You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”
“Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital for sure!” ventured another student & all the students laughed
“Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?”asked the professor.
'No‘…. Was the answer.
“Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?”
The students were puzzled.
“What should I do now to come out of pain?” asked professor again.
“Put the glass down!” said one of the students
“Exactly!” said the professor.

Life's problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.
It's important to think of the challenges or problems in your life,
but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN' at the end of every day before You go to sleep.
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!
So, When you leave office today,
Remember friends to…

What written in the e-mail had really touched my heart!... I can’t hold the hate that I have on him any more!... It makes me more painful rather than to forget him… Thus, from now on… “I’ll put the glass down” as to ensure I’ll live happily without holding anything to other peoples. How about you, all my friends? Aren’t you like to do the same? May be we can discuss & share the impact of this story together…
