As kids we have repeatedly been told “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” That is usually an admonishment for youngsters transitioning from uncontrollable honesty to peer group socialization and establishing a pecking order by picking on someone else. Facts of life, but the parental correction is still valid. That lesson sticks in our subconscious and can be appropriately applied in social situations for the rest of our lives. Why? Because words carry a great deal of power when personalized and pointed at our obvious faults. Things you say to someone can alter their self-image, help them conquer their greatest fear or shackle them with self doubt. You can change someones life for better or worse with a single sentence.
