Words- quick vent

Postby moonlight » Thu Nov 01, 2018 10:15 pm

Just a thought..

You know that cliche saying that we're all taught in elementary school?
"sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me"?

By that logic, if I don't let insults or depressing thoughts get to me, they cannot affect me.

But the opposite of that is true too- if I don't believe in the praise or uplifting thoughts someone else tries to give me, it cannot affect me either.

So why is it that it's so easy to buy into the harsh words and bad thoughts, letting them spiral out of control, while a simple compliment is shot down by hundreds of rebuttals and denials that my mind silently screams?

How are you today? I hope you are doing well. Thank you for sharing this.

Based on my experience, I learned that words have the power to heal or to harm.
Negative words can help me to be better or bitter person, it depends on how I respond.

Praise words inspire me to do greater things but sometimes praise can make me full of myself. I need to be careful how I choose to respond.

Please keep sharing, take care and I hope things will get better for you. You are in my prayers.
