How many times have you been cursed out? Not with curse words ...but curse words? How many times have you been made to feel worthless masked in a narcissist veil of stupidity. To the extent that you felt ashamed to even mention it, because after all it's just words right? No. Words hurt. Words REALLY hurt. According to Psychology Today, studies show there are clear physical and emotional consequences of verbal abuse. The things you are fed internally affect your outer being. We live in a world where we are offended in being cursed out but not defensive in how we're cursed. Not protective of our energy. Or our space. We undermine someone's ability to shift the course of our day until it's done and we're left with their baggage. Until our corner of sunshine has been overtaken by their gloom and clouds. You may constantly be a victim of word curses! Mabye a boss who undermines your skills through subtly abusive emails or a co-worker who constantly centers you in their gossip. Then again you may allow the curses of a spouse to deter your dreams because their compliments is in which it was built. The fact is curses are all around us. Death in tongues.
