This reminds me of when family members used to say “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”. I feel like sometimes as the selfish humans we are; we forget this. It’s so easy to say something negative when you’re upset, angry or just because you feel like it. But it’s hard to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagine the hurt that that negativity from others can cause.
On a positive note, do you remember ever blushing after someone has said something nice about you? It could be about your hair, the way you talk or just how smiley you are. The fact that you can remember the compliments makes this true. When someone says something nice you often remember it because we’re too good at pointing out our own flaws that it’s nice to feel fabulous in someone else’s eyes.
Just remember, the most simplest of things can either break you or make you. So make these positive for everyone by being nice. Share kind words with someone today!
