Some words can lock us up – words of hate, of desperation, of sadness and regret. These words can trap us, scare us from daring to live our lives the way we really want to lead them. Sometimes they were said by a parent, sometimes a friend or a loved one, and sometimes by someone who wanted to hurt us. Like it or not, words have power.
But it goes both ways – words that harm us can also heal us, can free us from the chains we put on ourselves and give us new direction. Read these words carefully and meditate on them, maybe they will prove helpful.
