The power of the spoken word can damage people more than any weapon or fist. And often those words can be unrepairable. Let me encourage you instead to build your family members (and friends) up and only speak kindly of them in public. I guarantee your spouse and children will notice. And it will fill them up with an enormous amount of pride and security. Life is tough enough without having our own close family members and friends tear it down for us. “Public praise, private criticism” And to this day, it is the best lesson that I have ever been taught.
Feel good that you have the ability to love & respect people even if they cannot treat you the same. I cannot change anyone but myself. Had to let it go with love & respect for my family & friends that do not treat me well. Just know your heart is golden & we can’t control others behaviour. ~ Mona Leilani
It’s best to keep silence and let the world spin, things eventually fall its place by its own weight, in the end people get what they deserve without you saying a thing, acting against anyone, giving them their space and love them from a distance. ~ Maria Rivera
