Words Shape Us

Words shape us. They shape how we feel about ourselves. They lift us to emotional highs. They destroy our confidence and self-image. The Hebrew Bible says that God spoke words and the universe was created from chaos.

Is there any society on Earth that does not have a minority population where words of the majority describe all their negative traits? Words designed to keep that minority subservient to the majority?

Do we choose the words we speak or post on social media? Or, do we repeat emotionally laden words that stirred our inner fears and prejudices without thinking?

We can choose words that lift people. Bolster faltering confidence. Encourage the young to excel at a profession or skill. Guide someone to the right path of life.

You can choose right now to filter words coming into your consciousness. You can choose to speak only encouraging words.
