Once upon a time lived a lion, Angry Alex. Alex was a scary lion who scared everyone off with his big roar. He wanted to calm down but even small things made him angry. Even when he was tried his best to calm down. And so, all the animals in the jungle started staying away from him.
You know, one day he got really angry and roared so loud that his body couldn't take it any longer. Feeling weak, he fell to the ground, and couldn’t gather the power to roar anymore. His anger had made him very ill.
He was taken to a healing jungle. It was the greenest and liveliest jungle of them all. Alex could listen to hundreds of birds and smell infinite flowers. Surprisingly, he was also surrounded by lots and lots of little cubs. “I hate children!” he said to himself and sat alone near the lake.
A little cub walked towards Alex to play with him. Alex got irritated and roared loudly. The cub opened his mouth really wide. Alex thought he's going to cry, but all the cub could do was laugh loudly.
He didn’t care, he jumped on Alex’s back and played with his mane. Alex didn’t know what to do. At first, he wanted to roar. No one had ever played with him before. As soon as Alex tried to roar, the cub roared back and started laughing again. He made funny sounds and punched Alex's neck, tumbling and laughing all the time.
He couldn't believe how silly and cute the cub was. He jumped around with the cub and happy tears of relief started rolling down his eyes. All he needed was someone to love him even when he was angry.
Gradually at the healing jungle, Angry Alex turned to the softest and kindest heart in the jungle and everyone, especially the cubs, loved him very much. They went on runs, ate meals together, and even sang for fun. Angry Alex became Adorable Alex.
You know what? Whenever you feel angry, think of this story and let out a happy roar. Always remember, we can conquer anything with compassion, empathy, and patience.
