Bite Your Tongue

Bite your tongue when those nasty retorts want to jump out of your mouth.  Have a heart.  A favorite excuse people use is, “I am just being blatantly honest.”  NO, you can be honest without harsh overtones, cutting digs or just plain rudeness.  Blatant honesty comes from those under the age of, perhaps, six.  We are all one.  We all experience pain, joy, unjust and fairness.  It is the simple things within our power to change.  The choices we make.  Choose positivity, bite your tongue and, perchance, say something nice instead.  Send Sunshine.

    Reblogging this. Honesty may sometimes make you feel better about yourself, but there’s another soul at the receiving end. Send sunshine.

    We have a a saying in our house: “Nice Words or No Words”. I wish I could say we all applied it all the time but I would be lying! It’s a process…

    1. Yeah! My friend thought it was a bit sappy, but it is hard to send a message without getting caught up in other belief systems, etc. Check out my about me page (short link on side bar) and it explains it a little bit more too! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

    So true that being honest, giving someone your opinion doesn’t have to be brutal. We used to have a rule at my last job, when critiquing facilities we worked with – for any negative give two positives.
