You know them. Those words with their hidden meanings. The simple phrases that on the surface seem benign.
But they're not.
We know better than most that words have power. They have life. Strength.
Use them wisely. Carefully.
A few words nearly broke me a little while ago. They weren't meant with ill intent. At least I don't think they were.
The speaker thought she was being helpful. And funny.
It's taken a while but I've built a scab over her words. I'm believing again. As I knew I would.
After all, my belief is part of me. Not her. Not in her words or her thoughts.
And I believe I can. I will.
