Can words promote healing?
To answer that question, first think about how you feel when a loved one makes an offhand negative comment to you, or when you have an argument, and the words go flying in the heat of the moment.
Or even on those days when you are seem to be avoiding each other as if you each existed in a different universe. Brrrr… it’s cold in here.
Upset? Stressed? Sad? Resentful? Alone?
Now, think about how you feel when you hear words of kindness. Most likely, a whole lot better.
Accepted? Cared for? Loved? Respected?
And what about when you are the one saying those kind words?
Words can heal. They help you relax. They give you a sense of well-being. They even produce those positive hormones that can make you feel warm all over.
And that’s good for you, emotionally, physically, spiritually.
So why don’t we use more healing words when we talk to each other? Good question, right?
Here is a link to an article I recently posted under Living with Diabetes:
And here’s a question for you:
So what if you didn’t wait until the heat – or the cold – of the moment? And made the decision to use those healing words every day? And maybe added a few more? What would life be like?
How are you using healing words at your house? Any ideas to share? Need a few ideas?
Let’s be more kind to each other. After all, we’re all in this together.
