Always Hope for Positive Change

You may have heard the childhood phrase, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.”So, in other words a physical attack may hurt but you’ll not be hurt by cruel words or name-calling. I recall uttering this phrase as a child to make others believe that I did not care about the name calling but I do recall that the words and name-calling did hurt. For me, a sensitive person, words do especially hurt. Over the years I’ve learned to manage my sensitivity or maybe I should say, I’m constantly learning to manage my sensitivity by making it more of a strength and less of a challenge in life. I do have those days where I overthink things, but I’ve become much more aware when doing so. I know that I feel things deeply, whether those things are positive or negative. I’m a work in progress J I constantly work on shifting my mindset to a more positive one. I often remind myself, instead of trying to change people or situations that I have no control over, I concentrate on my response, my reaction.

Change course to wipe away negativity, see the opportunity as you turn it into positivity!

In Christianity Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.

Happy and blessed Easter to you all.

I believe in God, love and life! Married to my friend, mentor and rock. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls. My personal journey provides opportunities for me to empower individuals to lead better lives. I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

You’re right Henrietta, words can hurt so easily … and I don’t think people always realise the impact (positive or negative) that it can have on the other person. Your approach of “my response, my reaction” is a good lesson. A blessed Easter to you and your family 🌻.

Thank you for sharing and a belated Happy Easter!.. I agree that words can sometimes be more painful than physical pain.. 🙂

Hope your world is pain free and until we meet again..
May the dreams you hold dearest
Be those which come true
May the kindness you spread
Keep returning to you

at times, physical wounds can heal more quickly & easily than emotional ones. I’m done with wishing I was a different kind of person, one who doesn’t feel, who hasn’t the lows but also hasn’t the highs and depth of compassion…
