Words



Words can either build up or tear down. We need to be careful how we use our words. I have had people say words that stick with me for years. One hurtful phase that was said to me in high school still comes to mind every now and then. A person called me "horse face". I can't remember the face of the person that said those words but the words are still painful.

I have heard so many good words spoken that have had a lasting effect on me.  These word include:  loveable, considerate, competent, beautiful, special, wonderful, awesome, and smart. These words are so uplifting and help me during rough times. They help me erase the old tapes from my childhood. They help me see myself in a different light. They build me up. We should all speak words that uplift others.

My folks always said,,,"If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." I can only imagine that people who say mean things have low self-esteem and are trying to make themselves feel better. To me, kindness is so easy.

Agreed, I do believe if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything.

The bullying that I endured in school still sticks with me, and I am nearly 50.
