What word do you most often use to describe people, when you’re upset, and when you’re happy? Here’s a newsflash––they roughly describe how you feel about yourself.
Our evolving minds take in a lot of information, especially from those we look up to, with the initials being our guardians. We’re informed by words commonly thrown around in our presence, as well as phrases we identify with. I’d like us to consider how unconscious these actions are––adapting external traits and viewpoints as our own.
Through repetition, we inform ourselves of behaviours, attitudes and actions that are acceptable. Before long, habits are formed and characters developed. If you want to know where one is headed, look at the choices s/he makes with his/her life. The words we think and utter declare life or death over our lives, and impact those around us either for good or evil.
If we’re keenly aware of the words we use, we start to make conscious decisions and changes to incorporate more of what we want, and less of what we’re not.
