Sticks and stones

Let’s stop telling children the old expression about sticks and stones breaking bones but words not hurting. I barely recall my first broken bone, yet somehow I remember hurtful words that created long-term, negative self-talk early in life.

A few years back I made a New Years resolution that stuck:  I never keep an honest compliment to myself.  Provided it’s honest and positive, you will hear about it.

You are more powerful than you think.  Don’t underestimate the power of words to have a meaningful effect on people’s lives.
