Careful The Things You Say

                              In our culture today we sometimes forget that words hurt just as much as actions. We may think that what we say is funny or just a joke. We don't realize how hurtful they can be. Maybe before we speak, we take a moment to think about if the same words were said to us, how would we feel? How can we teach the next generation, that when we say things about others not only can it be hurtful, but it can also be a form of bullying, when they see us as adults doing it?  T am reminded of the words of a song "careful the things you say children will listen, careful the things you do children will see and lean". As someone who still at times struggles with body image and looks words do hurt even when they are not meant to.  As always try to do something nice for someone it will not only make them feel good, but you also.


                         We are daughters, mothers, and wives. Many of us also work outside of the home.          Sometimes it can become difficult. We believe we have to be strong and be the one to take care of everything and everyone. We feel we cannot show our emotions. Whether we believe that if we show our emotions people will think we are weak, or maybe we feel that we just don't have time to deal with whatever it is, or we just don't want to deal with it, we push all of those emotions so far deep down inside of us. We put on a mask and hide it all. We tell everyone we are fine. We laugh and smile and try to forget everything. We pretend nothing is wrong. We keep doing what is expected of us, what people believe we should do. We have to be the women of change, just like those women who came before us, who fought and demanded change that gave us the rights we have today. we need to be the women of change and we have to be the ones who stand up and say it is okay to ask for
