Just because you cannot see emotional scars, does not mean that they are not there. Everyone around you is battling some form of an emotional struggle, and although you may not know about it or they may not show you, each individual person is dealing with something dark inside of their mind.
This is a reminder to walk gently among the world with your words, we are constantly being told to toughen up, yet how can we strengthen ourselves when we have beings around us belittling us with their degrading words.
A few kind words can go a long way, no seriously they can, sometimes all a human needs is to hear a compliment or a reminder that they are doing a great job. Today I went back and read through my emails and I found one from a beautiful soul from New Jersey and in his email he wanted to let me know that I was doing good things for the planet and he reminded me to stay on my path. He also said a few other beautiful things to myself as well and I honestly stepped away from my laptop feeling so nice inside, and all it took was for a few nice words from a man I had never even met!! So yes kind words do go a long way!
I believe it is incredibly important to stay mindful of those around us, and tread lightly with your words, you have no idea what someone may be battling with and a few harsh words may just be enough to push them over the edge, yes we are sensitive, and we have every right to be, words hurt to, you may not be able to see the repercussions of emotional wounds unlike physical wounds yet they are still there.
If we can say a few kind words each day to our work mate, friend, stranger or family member, then one kind word at a time can help make this world a better place. All humans want is to feel loved and to be reassured and comforted, we aren’t helping uplift our fellow brothers and sisters by degrading them with hurtful words.
I understand I must sound like a tree hugging hippy, but I truly believe we can make a difference by spreading more love instead of hate, look for the good in those around you, start focusing on their positives.
Remember, a few kind words can go a long way.
Love always, Lou.
