The words we say obviously can impact others. We unfortunately don't think about how the words we say out loud will impact us. When we say things, we also hear those things and believe those things and often times, those words are not thought out well and are even inaccurate. "I'm so stupid". "That was dumb". "I can't ...". I'm not ..." Positive self-talk is important but any talk is important for not only how it impacts others but how it impacts me.
Lord, thank You for the reminder that my words may impact others around me but they can also greatly impact how I think about myself.
