Day 62 // Words can build you up


Words can build you up

Words can break you down

Start a fire in your heart or

Put it out.


Grab a plate and throw it on the ground.

-Ok, Done.

Did it break?


Now say sorry to it.


Did it go back to the way it was before?


Do you understand?

We’ve all been the “breaker” and the “breakee” in a situation. And often we don’t realize how much of what we say impacts others – both positive and negative.

Our hurtful and hateful words “break” that plate (YOU) and we are never the same. Enter forgiveness but usually not “forget”ness.

It all comes back to the golden rule and applying a little extra thinking before speaking or writing. Treat people the exact way you want them to treat you.

Hard at times? Yes! But if done right, beautiful things can happen!
