What if we all said what we really felt instead of lie?
When someone asks us how we are we say something besides fine.
How badly inside that we want to say:
"No, I'm hurting today."
...and then begin to tell them why.
Why do we find it easier to hide behind a fake smile?
What if we get out of bed and say: "I want to make a change."
We wake up with a new idea to fix another's mistake.
We see what's going on and it makes us want to say:
"Some things have got to change."
...and tell ourselves that we can.
But why do we really think that we can't?
What if we start giving compliments instead of pointing out flaws?
We think about what we say before it passes through our lips.
Instead of using insults we say:
"You look rather lovely today."
...and see the smile upon their face.
Why does it make us feel better to make others feel worse?
