I read a friend’s blog today and she had one sentence that literally jumped out and figuratively slapped me across the room.
Hurting people hurt people.
So simple… yet says so much! How true is this statement???
Just reading this sentence boggles my mind. I think about the initial hurt, the hurt that is inflicted on someone else because of that initial hurt… and the snowball effect it has on an infinite number of people. How one hurts ripple can affect so many and what it takes to break that cycle.
Be mindful of your words. And sometimes it isn’t what you say but how you say it- so be mindful of your tone as well. What may not seem hurtful to you may be received as hurtful by someone else… and the ripple begins.
It doesn’t cost anything to be kind.
