Sticks & Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Will…

Think back to the schoolyard playground, or the neighborhood bully – or fast forward to the woman at work, the cashier at the supermarket, or a spouse even. Somebody, somewhere who just let loose and mentally abused you… BECAUSE YOU LET THEM!



We’ve all heard these words at one time or another. For many people this sentence couldn’t be further from the truth. Why? That’s because you’ve internalized what some mean spirited fool said about or to you. In most cases these people haven’t a clue of the harm they’re doing – they just enjoy passing judgement and love to spread all that negative energy around.
