Remember to bring more compassion into your life

Remember the jingle,“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? Maybe you chanted that back to persecutors or rehearsed the mantra time and again to disarm its message. Belittling names and words impact for a lifetime. We are prone to absorb toxic labels of stupidity, clumsiness, skinniness, fatness, and ugliness and the list goes on. Girls and women are circled as objects for conquest. News stories document the failure to listen and respect that the word no means no. Period. Comments (2)
