If You Don't Have Something Nice To Say...

Virtually, everybody's Mom or Dad or... taught them " If you don't have anything nice to say..." and we all know the rest. Granted there are times when we have to speak truth and the truth is  not always nice. But the principle remains. Whenever you can. SPEAK LIFE! How many of us in a day get cut down by someone else or EVEN OURSELVES. We can often be our own wort enemy. We often bring about self-fullfilling prophecies in our lives. Life is hard enough dealing with people talking us down. Degrading our abilities and our dreams. We can all make the world a bit better by saying I can do this thing called life AND so can you!

I am not talking about going all Polyanna or anything like that. But take the opportunity to encourage or compliment whenever you can. And if a situation calls for critique you have a choice to make. You can either give the neccessary negative in an honest but non degrading manner or not. TRUTH is important. But as as possible try to apply it with love and respect. It will be better recieved anyway! AND THAT INCLUDES YOURSELF!!!!! Don't talk yourself down either. We tend to be our own worse critics but that need no be so. Give yourself a fighting chance!

There is a proverb that says "The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences (GOOD OR BAD)." Words do matter. And they cannot always be happy and fun. That would not be reality. They words we say have the ability to help or hurt someone in virtually every situation. But at the very least if you can't bring yourself to speak life and least don't speak death. I love you all and I wish you the very best. See wasn't that nice?
