Yesterday, a friend gently reminded me that our words become our truth.
The more we say something, be it negative or positive, the more those words, that thought, becomes reality.
I was irritated with someone and I called them stupid. She reminded me that people make mistakes and that there can be miscommunication from both sides and that even though I was annoyed it didn’t make this person stupid.
She was right. The more I called this person stupid, the more annoyed I got and the more inclined I was to view anything to do with them in a negative light.
The fact is this person is not stupid, they do not deserve to be thought of that way and I was not only doing them a disservice but myself as well. I am not generally a negative person. I tend to see the best in people but now I was only seeing the negative.
From now I will remember to take a moment, deal with the issue for what it is, and not let my thoughts and especially my words become negative and toxic.
My words are my truth and my truth is positivity.
