"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me...." I have been thinking a lot about this proverb lately. Is it true, do the words really don't matter??? If a friend will say something to me, most hurtful, and it won't matter?
Do we have to make ourselves so strong that we can not be hurt by anyone's awful words? The answer is yes! Those who say awful words to you are either not your friends or they are so close to you that they want something good for you. If our young mind will be so fragile that it will break w
ith words......then what will sustain our hearts? Love is something that we all need in life to grow, and sometimes words, bad ones weaken this love.
Don't ever let them weaken you from the inside or the outside. Take in the positive and move on! Life will be with ups and downs and we have got to sustain ourselves in all conditions that follow. Just a little say here and there and you are sitting in your room and crying! We have a lot of salt water here so don't flood it more with your tears!
Remember that in life sometimes we have to let everything out! Words are made without the thought of hurt or love....it is just the way you saythem that makes all the difference. If you call your friend and say that you are glad to have them in your life - their face would glow with a wide smile. But, if you say that you don't like their company they would feel empty and sad. So many times the one feeling this emptiness is you!
Why??? Isn't it up to us what to listen to and what to not? God has provided us with two ears and a brain in between.Hear from one ear, retain what is needed in the processing unit aka the brain and throw out the rest from the other ear. Use the filter of wisdom!
If we include this practice then words will never hurt us, they won't break our hearts and won't steal our joy! Have fun FORGIVE AND FORGET! Enjoy life to the fullest and be carefree.
Take a deep breath and let go!
