Words can cripple or words can heal.
You’re a drunk. You’re crazy. You’re fat. You’re too skinny. You’re messed up. You’re an idiot. What do you know? Who wants to hear from you? You’re too young. Too old. What you think doesn’t matter.
Those kinds of words could send me into isolation and drinking. Not only said by others to me, but said to me in my own voice! Negative self-talk. When I was buzzed, the voice would stop and I would not care.
I have carried this kind of thinking around for far too long.
When I got sober and started to share my journey in words with others, I realized I was being healed!
Just by my words.
My mind that was full of word-wounds was healing as I flipped each word phrase around.
It can work for you too. Flip the negative words in your own head and then share with others.
You look great today. You seem peaceful and centered. You are so smart and full of wisdom. You are wise for your age. What you have to say matters to me. I love your smile. How can I encourage you today?
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up...” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
