sticks and stones.

We’ve all done it.

We’ve all had it done to us.

Speaking words that hurt.

We’re flawed human  beings who don’t always get it right.

It doesn’t make it okay. It doesn’t make it hurt less.

But it does help us to navigate through the pain.

What are those words that haunt you?

Words spoken to you as a child.

Words spoken in anger.

Words spoken of betrayal.

Even words not spoken .. hurt.

Now what?

Choose to love based on your own potential to falter.

Choose to love so you can be free.
