A man knocks on the door of a house and while talking with the inhabitants, notices that their dog is sitting in the corner of the yard howling in pain.
"What is the matter with your dog?", the man asks.
"Oh, he is sitting on a nail.", reply the inhabitants.
"Why doesn't he just move?", asks the man in disbelief.
"I guess it doesn't hurt enough.", is the reply.
So what small hurts do you have within yourself or your family? Hurts that you may well complain (howl) about to others, yet not take action that will address the situation.
As you well know, if the dog continues to sit on the nail, over time this minor wound will begin to fester causing much more of a problem. In the longer term this may result in the loss of a limb or even the loss of life.
In the same way, unaddressed issues (wounds) within yourself or your family may in the longer term result in loss of intimacy with the family, losing touch with a dear family member, or in the extreme, the break up (loss) of the family.
