Teaching Words

The old saying is..."If you cannot say something nice don't say nothing at all!

I am no stranger to the power of words... it's part of my craft. Words come to life. Be careful what you say. Mean what you say and say what you mean!

Now what if u do mean what u want to say, but u know it will hurt the next person, do u rather keep quit and let it hurt u instead? If it bothers u why not say it? Might destroy or change the next person but u won't know either of these if u don't say it, I hate not being able to speak my mind coz it hurts me instead, bottling things up because of not wanting to say something that might hurt someone but letting it hurt me is not an answer to myself, I'm confused, please help! Its my mind speaking, someone else's might make more sense

Plaid, thank you. It's the only way to live in my thinking too! Have a good week. Take care

Very true, Breeze. I try to live by that standard, of saying what i mean and meaning what I say...and am trying to show those around me that it's a good way to be. Hopefully my example will encourage others to follow suit....
