Abusive names hurt more than sticks and stones!

Abusive names hurts more than sticks and bones.

A popular adage says “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” The truth is negative names really hurt more than sticks and stone. Many adults have gone astray today because of the abusive and negative words that have been used on them while growing up. They have been programmed to believe they are useless, they are senseless, they are mad, and other sort of negative believes just by calling them all sort of negative names. Many are victims of depression, and drug abuse as a result of their self-esteem being marred by verbal abuse from parents, friends, and relatives in their formative years.

The mind of a child is so fragile that it can be broken by the words, and it can also be made stronger by the words.

Choose wisely the kind of words that proceed out of your mouth to your children, spouse, friends, to that beggar across the road, to that student in your class whom everyone thinks he/she is born to be a dullard, to anyone regardless of the social demographics.

Let your words be nourishing to every mind that receives it. Learn to channel your words to encouraging the children around you to be achievers, and inventors, void of drug abuse, and other social vices. Yes! It is possible…. with the power of your words.
