A blog about writing and all things story…
I was weary of all the hate-mongering on my twitter feed this morning so I posted this card (below). I can comprehend Caitlyn Jenner’s transition more than I can comprehend those who choose to hate what they cannot understand. I don’t know why she/he was chosen over others who were possibly (or not) more deserving, and I don’t care, that’s all show BUSINESS. What I do care about is the cancer of anger and hate in this world. We can all do something about that, starting with the words we share on social media. Don’t feed the hate.
Writers, remember that your Words Have Power ~ Use Them Wisely. Words like ‘hate’, that convey a message of bullying, bigotry, and judgement rely on taking someones power away. Words like love, offering acceptance and understanding give power to the ones who receive as well as ones who give. Words have power ~ use them wisely.
Share THIS message on twitter and tap me at @Mindyhalleck when you do.
Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out.
Karl Augustus Menninger
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the
beginning of wisdom.
If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.
