The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt me”.
We used to say this all the time when we were kids. We now know that words carry vibrations and those vibrations vary depending on the sentiment behind the words. Yesterday we received a very heartwarming letter from one of my daughter’s teachers. They were beautiful and left such a warm impression. WE also heard an ugly argument between two people while out to dinner last night. The feeling we were left with after hearing those words were almost wounding and the words weren’t even directed at us. I am going double my efforts to really think before I speak as words carry much power.
