Sticks and Stones May Break Your Bones, but Words Can Also Hurt You

Words can hurt. Here’s how you can make sure they won’t hurt you anymore.

When you were little, you probably heard the phrase, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”

That’s a great idea and a good lesson for children to learn. However, I do think that what is said to you and about you matters. Why?

Whenever you hear something over and over again, negative or positive, it goes deep down into your subconscious and stays there.

If you have goals but you haven’t been able to achieve them, I challenge you to look at some of the negative messages that you’ve heard—or maybe even said—about yourself.

Then, create some powerful affirmations and write them in your journal. When you catch yourself saying “I can’t,” just know that you can, and you will.

What you listen to, what you hear, and who you surround yourself with matters, so pick wisely and find people to encourage and support you.

If you have any questions for me, I would love to talk to you more. Just give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
