Words, won’t hurt you at all. . .

It was our parents and grandparents way of protecting us from bullies wasn’t it?
the biggest bullies we ever face
might not be those we perceive to do us harm
from the “OUTSIDE,”
but those who are the very closest to us,
friends, or, yes. . ,
even o u r s e l v e s !

We all have our individual ways
of filling in the most important blank
that often leaves us
B L A N K—–
E m p t y. . .
H O W we fill in that Blank
is much more important than W H A T
we fill in it’s________________________.
we know it,
we know we know it,
we bet our lives that we know it,
but for the life of us,
we mostly act like we don’t know:
We can be that
Glorious Blank FILLER
for others. . .
I WISH THAT YOU WOULD SAY. . .
Needs to be replaced with:
TELL ME WHAT YOU’D LIKE TO HEAR
THAT WOULD MAKE YOU THE
H A P P I E S T. . .
and then do more than listen,
or hear. . .
but do accordingly. . .
YOUR WORDS ARE POWERFUL . .
Use them as the balm that soothes i
nstead of the bash that bruises. . .
In the End,
we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends
