Yesterday, one of my best friends in the world posted a blog about an insecurity of hers that barely anyone knew about. This friend of mine, shes amazing. She has never judged me, she’s always been accepting and open, she’s kind and considerate of other people. She trys her hardest everyday to be the person that God created her to be, and it’s truly beautiful being able to see her live her life. When she was younger, a person… a single person, made fun of her for this particular insecurity and from then on she decided to never show or tell anyone about it. Can you beleive that? I can. Because THAT IS HOW POWERFUL WORDS ARE. I am SO sick of people using words as a weapon. I know, i know, i talk about this all the time, but i dont think i could ever talk about it too much. Sometimes we say things and we don’t mean to hurt people, but we do… which is why we need to always think before we speak and ask ourselves if what we are going to say is going to lift someone up or tear someone down. But the worst part is, some people say awful words on purpose, with full intentions to hurt them, they use words as a weapon in their most literal sense. They emotionally and mentally hurt someone… which can change their lives physically.
It took me a while to get to this place in my life, but i got here… and that place is that i realized that not one of us is any better than anyone else. We are all here on this earth, God loves us all and we all have the same choices to make and we all choose differently… so that makes us different, but still equal. People who hurt people on purpose, those people arent at that place i don’t think. Those people either think they are better than someone and want to bring others down so they can stay on “top” or they are insecure and think they are inferior to someone so they bring others down to try to feel better about themselves. Both aren’t right. We are all here on this earth together, so we should get along, uplift each other, encourage each other, pray for one another and genuinely want the best for one another. This world is not a competition, but it is a battle field, can you imagine what the battle field would be like if we were ALL on the same side? What a beautiful thing.

Are you familiar with Eminem? I’m not going to lie, i enjoy his music but some of the things he sings about are just unnecessary. Anyways, he has a song called “MY WORDS ARE WEAPONS” So if you don’t want to hear about it from me or the Bible… you can hear about it from him. I advise you to not look up the lyrics if you cant handle vulgar and obscene language, the verses of this song make me sick, i only looked at the words to write this blog… but in the chorus he says “My words are weapons, i use them to crush my opponents. My words are weapons, never show no emotion, my words are weapons, i use them to kill whoever steppin to me.” Which basically… proves my point.
DONT BE MEAN! :)
