Hi friends, have you ever thought about the power of words? I for one can remember when one of my besties told me that if she had a daughter she’d want her to be just like me (I bawled); but on the flip side I remember when my brother told me I was cruel and ungrateful when I was 13.
I truly can remember the very best and the very worst things people have said to me…even from when I was a kid! I can even recall how those words felt filling me up with sadness or happiness. I’m not perfect at this, but I really do try to let these memories inform the way I speak to people, especially in arguments.
Remember the words you choose to say at any moment, can truly stay with someone forever…so choose kindly :).
