Words are just that – words. They only have power over you when you let them. It is up to you to choose which words you absorb into your being and which words you discard. Don’t let someone bully you and don’t believe people who are only throwing negativity your way. Likewise, don’t put yourself down with negative self talk as it only harms.
Words are meant to uplift, give support and show love, kindness and caring. Unfortunately too often, words are used to belittle, put down, shame or hurt. Choose the type of person you want to be and use your words accordingly. Be the best of the example rather than the worst.
