Sticks and stones my break my bones but name calling (harmful words) will never hurt me. Wellllll actually they do… So many things we say can be unnecessary and hurtful. To solve this issue we should THINK before we speak. The quote tells us to go thru the 3 gates before we speak.
- Is it truthful?
- Is it necessary?
- Is it rude?
Answer these simple questions before speaking and you can make sure what is coming out of your mouth is honest, helpful, and kind! Being a positive person we always want to set a standard and be honest, helpful and kind so remember these things when we talk.
Have a great weekend!
PS my list of things are getting done successfully and I haven’t had a snowball of negativity! #gome!
