If you are of a certain age, you will know that the rest of the saying goes like this…
“…may break my bones; but names will never hurt me”
Here, there are two important points to make
Firstly, names can hurt us very much indeed.
Secondly, and this is very important…they can only hurt us if we choose them to.
Ok, let’s look at this simple saying with logic. Sticks and stones can indeed break our bones. We would have no choice in the matter if said weapon or weapons were wielded upon us!
And herein comes the all important word “CHOICE”
We have a CHOICE as to whether names or words are going to hurt us. The very fact that we have a choice means the decision is in our hands and NOT the hands of another.
Change your choice! Choose not to be hurt by idle words.
Regain your power! Like the Superhero you are!
