Sometimes when one is down, it’s easy to focus on the lone thistle in the field of daisies. It can be easy to overlook all the lovely things one has in life. It can be easy to catastrophize, and feel as though nothing could ever improve. It can be easy to bring others down as well through actions that one may or may not be aware they display. Unwittingly, these thoughts and actions can hurt those you love, admire, and respect.
One shouldn’t stifle one’s voice for fear of what others will think, but it’s important to be aware of how one’s words may be perceived by the important people in my life.
