Lesson Learned: Sticks and Stones

We are told as kids that words can’t hurt, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.   I have grown so much in the last year in regards to love and relationships, but hear me when I say that I still have a ways to go.  Sometimes, it’s not about who wins the argument or even who started it.  But in the heat of the battle, when emotions are high, it’s hard to think about the root cause of a conflict and a solution for it.

In fact, it is easier to scream and say mean things, then to rationally discuss difficult topics. But any relationship worth maintaining is worth the uncomfortable feelings that only transparency can provide.

Bottom line, we should strive to refrain from saying things that we can’t take back, because “sorry” can’t make the unforgivable okay.
