Writing Workshop Wednesdays (26)

While in a waiting room yesterday, I caught the tail end of the Dr. Phil show focused on cyber bullying.  Apparently the parents on the show had a child who was being bullied through the Internet which resulted in the suicide of said child.

As a victim of adult cyber bullying, I know how hurtful messaged words can be.  I can only imagine the magnitude of this hurt on an adolescent.

Observing those seated yesterday in various stages of disease and worry, my thoughts always return to the power of our words if used in a POSITIVE manner.

Since I am usually a difficult stick and walk out with numerous needle holes when blood is taken or i.v.s are put in, I was grateful at the solo stick yesterday.  Wanting to thank my nurse, I handed her the card pictured above.  A card similar to this was given to me by woman blesssing Sarah K. (whom introduces me to some of the coolest stuff), and it completely made my day week month.

So, for this season of love, how do you plan to use your words for the better?

  1. I am very concerned about how easy it is to cyber bully. Why are people so mean? It’s not the “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me” that I grew up with decades ago.

    I’m ready to return to simpler, more gentle times.
