“Words! What power they hold. Once they have rooted in your psyche, it is difficult to escape them. Words can shape the future of a child and destroy the existence of an adult. Words are powerful. Be careful how you use them because once you have pronounced them, you cannot remove the scar they leave behind.” ― Vashti Quiroz-Vega

We have become a society that is so concerned with our “rights” to say and do things, we have stopped considering if we should say or do those things!

This is very important.  Call it the Golden Rule, or being “Christ-like” or whatever you want.

I like this passage because it always annoys me when people say “You are responsible for your own feelings, and that if you let people upset you, you have no one to blame but yourself.”  Well, that just allows everyone to act like jerks and not feel the need to take any responsibility for the results.  THAT is the kind of world we live in now, and how does everyone like it???

Wouldn’t it be a better place if we were all allowed our own opinions and beliefs as long as we hurt no one, but we didn’t feel the need to beat one another over the head with them?

  1. Hmm… not many reactions, your Highness. May i hereby propose an alternative for T.H.I.N.K.: F.E.E.L.? F – Fu%$ political correctness E – Expose yourself E – Explain yourself L – LOL! Which one do you think/feel is the best, people!? Come on!! Don’t leave us here lost in the superunknown!!!

    • Hahah! Everyone should be able to LOL at themselves. People are so determined to be pissed about something. I was on a FB for Military people with PTSD and someone commented and took issue with the fact that “veterans aren’t the only ones who get PTSD.” Well, no one claimed they were numb-nuts but would you go to a charity function, say, and complain about all the people the function DOESN’T help? You know what I mean??? This is also along those lines. I guess it kinda boils down to the ol’ adage, “If you can’t say something nice…” (eat somebody.)

      • Oh! Wait! I think i got it now! FB must stand for Facebook, and PTSD for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? Thank god, it all makes sense now! Arguable there shouldn’t go any charity to military people. I mean, war, what is it… (an embarrassment)
