so, today was a better day. my emotions seem to be a bit more stable and i can actually make it through an entire day without spontaneously bursting into tears. sometimes, i really hate being a girl. really, truly. but all of that aside, i do have a lesson to take out of all this. if you don't care, quit reading. nobody is forcing you. but if you are interested then here it is: interestingly enough sometimes we may get caught up in the belief that our words mean nothing and that the things we say don't really matter to anyone. although as small as we truly are, our words are alot more powerful than we may give them credit for. one tiny stab at someone can do more damage than you may ever even know. i know this sounds like common sense to most people, but i have never really thought that anybody listened to what i have to say. i am so insignificant in this huge world of people that somehow i feel like i am just another average college student. making average decisions, headed for a bright future. why would anybody want to hear what i have to say or even really care? apparently though, there are some out there who do hear me and do care. and i know that this is the same for everyone out there. somebody will always be watching or listening. be careful of what you say and be mindful of whether you are speaking praises or poison. what you say could hurt you someday, or even immediately. think before it comes out your mouth. and this is the lesson i have needed to remember. maybe this applies to nobody else but me, but, then again, maybe not. like i said, someone could always be listening...


shine on,
glitter girl.

Your need for this lesson is nothing compared to mine,
maybe it is because i have never had a problem for self-esteem or worth, and never took any insult to myself seriously, but i expect everyone to be similar to myself, which is mostly apathetic with a few moments of caring,which may or may not be true, but with that in mind i make the following comment,
Our words really are only as significant as we make them seem, another's compliments or insults can have as little or as much effect as the individual they are referenced to allows.
This means that any fault that comes from a minor insult or another's mistake can be due to the individual that allows it to be true, not the person that makes the comment.
