Words can be very powerful.  Depending how they are used, they can either lift you to the highest highs or crush you to the deepest lows.  Think about it for a second.  Do you remember a favorite teacher or coach, or maybe it was your one of your parents when they told you how proud of you they were, or when they said what an amazing job you did, or how much you mean to them?  Can you feel that moment?  We all have that moment where the words filled us with absolute joy.  Then let's take the opposite.  Do you remember someone saying something to you that was the worst thing ever?  It either hurt your feelings, made you feel worthless, crushed your self-confidence or broke your heart?  Of course, you do.  We all have that one too.  In fact, we have all experienced it and we have all been the one that laid it on others.  But what is really crazy is that we have all done this to ourselves.  Yup, it's those voices in our head.  More often than not, they are of the negative crushing version.  But if you know you can crush others with these bad words or comments, why would you do that to yourself?  We should be our own best friend.  We should be the one that is always encouraging ourselves.  We should be the one that stands up for ourselves.  We should be the one that's there to raise ourselves up.  We honestly can't rely on others to do this for us so be your own protector.  Use your words to get the best out of you.  You are with yourself 100% of the time so might as well make it worth it!!:)
