Hari OMThis is so true... I have to own up that sometimes this is a challenge for me - not because I have any mean-ness intended, but because I simply am such a straight thinker/talker, that can sometimes forget not everyone is that 'clear'.... a spade is a spade, but to some it might just be curled enough to be a shovel... or they have learned in life that it is a weapon and fear it. Mostly am good. Occasionally fail.... thanks for the reminder. YAM xx
Oh yes.That old phrase 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me' is a fib. A big fib.Words can scar.
I've been careless with my words now and again, but I'm also quick to apologise.
