I am a sword

A piece of iron goes through tempering – placed in fire until it is red hot, taken out to be hammered, dipped in water, placed in fire to get red hot again, and taken out to be hammered once again… This whole process is called “tempering.”

What does it mean?

When the situation given is hard to endure, you still have to endure it. When subject to difficulties and hardships, only if you can be tempered to become tough like steel, can this piece of wrought iron be considered valuable.
