    Words might be powerful

    but actions are even more so. There's so much you can do and say to change someone's life. I wonder every second what I could've done to stop her from ending hers

    A Good Reason To Think Before You Speak !?

    Words hold much more power than people think. I have witnessed first hand the damage that words can cause, especially when being spoken by someone cruel and heartless. When a child is called names and told they are worthless and will never be anything but a burden to every one...

    Words are sounds we make to express thoughts

    and feelings. Try this experimental exercise. Take any word you want and say it or write it up to 50 times in a row. Result being you will end up having thoughts or feeling connected or not to the word. Have fun.

    I love to hear kind and encouraging words.

    When they are sincere it makes me tear up sometimes.

    The Power Of Listening

             By virtue of belonging to or posting in this group, we apparently agree that words, written as well as spoken, are powerful, but consideration should also be given to the possibility that the source of that power is not singular or one-sided. There are words and...

    Words Can Never Hurt Me ... Not True At All

    My greatest hurts and my greatest peace has come from words. When I was feeling very alone the word that I loved the most was 'we'. When someone said to me " we will sort it out" I felt at once changed and no longer alone and afraid. The word 'we' to me is still...

    you live, you learn. You are human, not perfect. You have been hurt, but you are alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also a lot of...

    The thing people forget is how good it can feel

    when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they are out in the open...like it or not. Once your secrets are out in the open, you don't have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is, even when you think you're in control, you're not.

    Words leave their mark far longer

    or death. They can tear down or build up. They can inspire or dampen spirits. What words do you dwell on today ? What words will you speak out or share?

    I believe that everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they go right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
