My daughter is 17 years old. She told me yesterday that I taught her a good lesson one day, and she remembered each of the words I said.
I do not remember “each word”, but I’m not surprised I told her this!
When and if one day you have the possibility to unease someone with your words, don’t do it.
Well, that seems obvious. I saw and heard it myself so many times, though…
For example, when one has the possibility to say “I told you so”, one should stay quiet. “I told you so” is a stupid simple way to tell the other you’re smarter. So what? It’s done, and the lesson is probably learnt, and your pal doesn’t need or wish to hear they’ve been stupid.
“I told you soers” just prove they’re, in fact, weak. They need to big themselves up. Probably because they’re not confident enough?
Unless for mean persons, they are other moments we should just keep quiet instead of jumping like a spider to wordhurt someone. What are these moments?
Other question : What happened which made my daughter remember this so precisely? Was it after kids drama? Have I been solemn or serious about it? Do your kids feel when you’re talking from somewhere deeper in ourselves?
Thanks for reading!
