Joy Heals

Posted on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 in Uncategorized

Rather than wound others, we can bring healing.

Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.” 1

1387838_melon-loving_girlWhen we respect both ourselves and the other person by choosing not to call anyone names, use putdowns, or attack with insults we make the world a better place.


Because name-calling hurts, “being called a name won’t admit you to a hospital, but words that shame wound deeply and can still hurt years later. After all, broken bones can be fixed, but hurtful words and taunts can cause pain for a lifetime. Insults, like name-calling, can create self-doubt that doesn’t go away. It’s even worse if a parent hurls verbal abuse.” 2

Instead, it’s true “a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” 3

Yes, “If you are cheerful, you feel good; if you are sad, you hurt all over.” 4

When we bring joyful and kind words of hope and encouragement we make the world a better place.

It’s especially important for those of us who are parents, leaders, supervisors and people in positions of authority.
