When a man is stung by a bee he does not destroy all beehives



When a man is stung by a bee he does not destroy all beehives is an African Proverb. African proverbs express the timeless wisdom of African people.


The meaning of the proverb is just because one set of people may have caused harm or unhappiness in your life that does not mean everyone will hurt you. You have a choice every day to either focus on what separates or focus on what holds together. Everything and everyone you hate is written across your heart, in the end, you are causing more pain to yourself than the people you despise.
