Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words..are something we really don’t pay attention to. People don’t realize the power of their words. Words can enlighten, educate, uplift, comfort, etc. But they can also do the opposite. Words can hurt, damage, manipulate, ruin, and so on and so on.
Even when we talk about ourselves, we either take the positive route, or, we can do damage to ourselves by what we say. We can’t control what others say, but we can change our mindsets and lift ourselves up with our attitudes and speech. Have to change how we feel about ourselves, and change the way we look at things.
It can hurt and be very painful, especially when it’s someone who you loved or cared about, but don’t let that verbal dagger pin you to the ground. Know where you stand and how you feel, regardless of anyone else. Sticks, stones, no broken bones….
“Speech is the mirror of the soul; as a man speaks, so he is”. – Publilius Syrus
