The War of Words

I took another road trip. I know, I “be road-trippin” a lot these days. Not to run away from myself anymore, but to seek myself.

In short, this weekend had a lot of reflective moments about just how powerful words truly are. A dear friend that I’ve made in this city asked me, “How do you know you have (insert issue here)?” Before I could list my symptoms they responded Because someone told you.”

They are absolutely right. Momo would always quote this bible verse:

We react to words even when we don’t respond to them.

Speak positive thing over others and yourself. For me, the latter is often the most difficult. I preface interactions with others with demeaning words about myself : I’m awkward, I have anxiety. The M O R E that I speak these things, the worse they become.

What are some positive words you can employ in your mental warfare today?

I’ll start by telling you that are valuable , you should cherish and love yourself so much – that it is contagious towards others, you have accomplished awesome things and will continue to with the right amount of effort and belief.
