Sticks and Stones!

feb142

I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I would hear this all the time “sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt me.” Well I am here to say that is just not true. Although we may have control over most of our emotions everyone has been hurt by words at some point in our lives. Sometimes words aren’t even meant to be hurtful but to someone else it may have come out all wrong.Β  You have some people who speak their minds without regard to how the other person may feel about what you just said. I think it’s good to tell someone exactly how you feel but in a way that isn’t accusing or demeaning to the other person. I try to live by the saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all! Even though sticks and stones may break your bones so do words that can cut through you like a knife. I also try to remember that we all may have a different perspective about things and it may no coincide with mine so we need to keep an open mind with how we are talking to people. Believe it or not you leave an impression on someone with the way you talk to people and the way you about people so keep that in mind next time you think “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”Β
