Remind yourself that words ARE NOT sticks, nor are they stones. 🌈

It has been a stressful year thus far. Im slowly learning how to deflect negative aura and reflect positive aura. Sometimes when we are in stressful situations, we harbor bitterness. Guilty as charged. I have made some mistakes under stressful times, and I haven’t necessarily handled them well. The harmful souls in my life stredded me on social media with *defamation per se. Some of them were my enemies, some were lifelong “friends” of my past, some were strangers that didn’t even know me. 

I prayed for peace and happiness to God and gave my daughter’s bottle as an offering to nature. 

“Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” I wish I truly believed that. I’m trying to. 

*Defamation Per Se refers to defamatory statements that are so vicious and the harm is so obvious, that malice is assumed, and proof of intent is not required for general damages (i.e. falsely accusing someone of committing a crime involving immorality; claiming someone has a repugnant, contagious disease; or statements claiming that the individual is unfit or unable to perform his employment duties.) Most states specifically recognize these categories of false statements as defamatory per se. 

And Hayley Watson, I didn’t read your comment before I deleted it. I wish you well.
