Words Can Really Hurt

I was surfing the net and found a blog post by the Orlando Sentinel's Becky Williams that really hit home. It is about how we talk about ourselves and the influence that has on others in our lives. Especially children.

How often have I said, "Do I look fat in this?" "Gosh I feel so huge today!"

Those words hang in the air, and stick in the minds of young people. They are so impressionable, and as much as they like to say they don't care what we say, they do. They are watching us, seeing how we approach life, the good, the bad & the ugly.

I vow to use only positive language when speaking about myself and others.

What about you?
