What Have “words” Done for You Lately?

Words can be powerful even devastating. Why has our society shifted into a world of hateful remarks, put-downs and gossip? Well, I am sick of it! People have nothing better to do than pick on others’?

I am referring to adults! That’s the sad part-these are grown-ups!

Words have:
-Freed slaves
-Enslaved people
-Created the atomic bomb
-Started wars

This really makes me think, the next time I am getting ready to say something negative, I will try my best to STOP!

A word can make me feel great! A word can also make me feel lower than dirt!

Now we live in a world with constant put-downs! It’s getting old, real fast! Why would I want to listen if all I hear are negative remarks and gossip! My brain tunes out that information. Has there been a shift in society where others’ feel better putting people down?

That is cruel. Maybe the old days of being polite need revisited.

I beleive people rise to our expectations.

Thoughts or experiences you would like to share on the subject?

  1. Words spoken without thinking enough first, or in acts of unkindness do have negative consequences that go on long after. I’m glad you want to consciously focus more on being positive.
