When Words Hurt

What do you do when other people hurt you with their careless words? Do you  try to remain as calm and composed as you can be, holding on to your rein of patience or should you retaliate and unleash your wrath to put that person in his/her place?

Some people cloak their tactlessness behind the excuse of being brutally honest, but I find that in most cases  those who claim to be such, enjoy the brutality more than the honesty. How many of us have been scarred by rash and thoughtless words?

Indeed, words can be very powerful - with our words we can choose to hurt or heal, comfort or discourage, build up or tear down. Let us choose to do good with our words today and always.

"The genius of communication is the ability to be both totally honest 
and totally kind at the same time."

John Powell
