Remember in the last life lesson post when we talked about looking for the good in all people? This especially applies to what we say about others.
Our words have both good and negative power that can greatly affect your life and the lives of others. So keep this in mind when you are about to talk bad about someone whether it’s to their face, or behind their back.
Besides, most of the time you say something negative to another person, it only aggravates the situation or their attitude towards you. Very rarely is someone’s actions or attitudes changed by others talking bad about them or to them.
So if you are not able to find something good with or about someone… just don’t talk about them at all if you can help it. It serves no positive benefit and can make you look very bad to others.
