A Short But Deep Lesson on Why We Shout When We Are Angry…

A wise man was once with a group of his students when they came upon a family that was shouting in anger at each other. He asked the students, ‘Why do people shout at each other when they are angry?’

The students thought for some time and one eventually said, ‘Because when we lose our patience, we shout.’

‘But why shout when the other person is just next to you? Can’t you say what you need to in a soft voice as well?’ asked the wise man.

The students gave some other answers but none of them were adequate.

Finally the wise man explained, “When two people are angry at each other, their hearts become distant from each other. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the greater the distance will be and the louder they will have to shout.”

The wise man continued, “Similarly, what happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small. When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper.”

“Ultimately they need not even whisper, but only look at each other and that suffices. That is how close two people are when they love each other.”

“So when you argue, do not let your hearts get distant from each other. Do not say words that will distance your hearts from each other more or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’
