A word to the wise.

A word of very well intentioned advice:

 

*Treat harsh speech as if it is the most deadly of all poisons. Do not speak harshly to anyone. Ever. It is poisonous to the soul and the heart, and those words can never be unsaid.

 

There is always a better, kinder, option.

 

Be respectful even when you're angry.

I love these words. The perspective helps cultivate self empathy and awareness. And at the same time encourages me to practice what I believe and in turn not speak harsh words. It can sometimes prove difficult given my profession as a teacher in a very harsh neighborhood, with children hurting other children and lashing out often, yet I always try to never meet anger with anger or hate with hate. Thank you for these words. I think I'll share them with my kids.
