Words. Have you considered how powerful they are?
Words hurt. Words can destroy relationships and break families apart. They can discourage and humiliate, be rude and judgmental. How painful is it to be the brunt of critical, hateful words?
Words can also encourage, lift others up. A parent's words to their child can be gentle, kind, and patient. Sweet words like "I love you" create a lasting bond. Humble words like "I'm sorry" restore relationships.
How will you use your words today?
