His words killed me


When I was going through my divorce, my ex-husband never once got physical. Our arguments were very heated, accusatory and degrading. It was like going to war but without guns and bullets, these physical things replaced by shouted words and phrases which left deep dark holes in my heart and soul. Sometimes it took me days to recover and just when I thought it was going to be OK I was thrown back into the word-pit.

Maybe you cannot relate, but I want to encourage us today to be kind and gentle in our words and in our actions; we can all play our part no matter how small in making the world a better place 🙂
