28 Jan

The tongue is quite the part of our body. It is a relatively small thing but it can be incredibly strong. Some say it is the strongest muscle in the human body.
The tongue can certainly do a lot of damage. When we speak poorly of others, we can cause a lot of pain. In a small community like this it does not take long for stories to spread through the population and that can have a huge impact on an individual and their life.
The tongue can also be very powerful in building someone up. Every person out there is fighting personal battles all day long and a good, positive comment can change everything. I know that it makes a huge difference for me when I receive a compliment. And I like to believe that on occasion folks are actually speaking well of me but we all know that they aren’t always being nice.
So try to control your tongue. It can be difficult to not jump in when people are discussing others but you can decide whether your input will be positive or negative. People probably prefer positive people.
On the other end of it, do not live your life worrying about what others think and say about you. Because really, it only matters what you think of yourself.
