Watch Your Words

The childhood rhyme that says, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me,” is far from true. Words can literally kill. Our words create our world. As you look around your surrounding, you are talking to yourself about everything you see. They become beautiful or ugly, valuable or worthless, based on our prescriptions of them. So too with our health. If we tell ourselves that starving a fever will help relieve it, it probably will. If we say that arthritis are inevitable, they probably will be. People tend to find what they have told themselves to expect.
