Remember when someone did something to hurt you? Did you immediately think of revenge to make them pay for what they did to you? Did plotting revenge against that person make you feel better? What revenge planning does is holds onto the anger you are feeling against the person who hurt you. Plotting revenge takes up your physical and mental energy. Not only does plotting revenge take up lots of your time, it ultimately leads to higher levels of aggression and in the long run, will not give you closure or make you feel better but encourages you to continually think about how you were wronged.
Our life experiences, from our childhood onward, affect how we perceive everything that we experience each day. As a dog who has only been beaten will perceive a raised hand will beat him, a dog who has only known love will perceive a raised hand to pet and stroke him. If our world is colored with negative images and feelings, each time we see or feel similar images and feelings, we will have the same experience, regardless if the interaction was meant that way or not. It is our belief that with a certain action, a specific thing will result with that action. To change your perceptions, you must try to restructure the your beliefs of negative images and feelings to positive images and feelings. The only way to do this is to begin to chance your internal belief system. The more positive interactions you have, the more they will begin to outweigh the negative interactions in your belief system. It does take conscious thought but over time you can be successful and make changes in your perceptions. It will not happen overnight or immediately, though with constant effort you can change your perceptions, which will change your thinking process and ultimately change your interactions with others and their interactions with you for the better.

Fearing failure or fearing loss stops you from going forward in life. If you don’t take the first step towards your goals or if you are fearful of telling someone you love them, you will be missing out on so many wonderful things you could experience in life. Take the chance and live life to the fullest.

I think it is always important to speak only kindness and to think about what we say to others and about others. Use your words to speak love to others, not hate. Once words are spoken there is no way to unsay them.
