We say words we do not mean…

In my culture, we say quite alot of words we do not mean…

These words are often heard when we are angry, irritated and sometimes even in casual talks.

Over exaggeration is also very common in our conversations and these are often not looked on as false or lies.

We oftentimes too refrain from saying the words we ought to be saying and the words we really do mean…

In my culture we readily give an opinion on things we know little or nothing about and oftentimes our words are unkind and brutish.

Here are a few words. Can you think of anymore or any they use in your culture?

Words we speak about men:
– Men are dogs
– Men need to find their rightful place
– Men are no good
– Men are selfish
– Men are not loving towards their children

Words we speak about our children:
– You are worthless and good for nothing
– You will not become anything good in life
– You will soon breed
– You dunce
– You have no sense
– You are stupid

Words we speak about our women:
– She is a bitch
– She is a witch
– She is such a Jezebel
– She only know to take man
– She is a whore
– She have no ambition
– She only want him money

Words we speak about our leaders:
– They don’t know what they doing
– They are thieves and crooks
– They are all the same

Words we speak about ourselves:
– I am not good enough
– I don’t deserve better
– I am so cold
– I am so tired
– I am stressed
– I am broke
– I am weak

  1. So true, and then we become these negative words, we act like its meaning and demonstrate it in our everyday lives. The one I dislike the most is the word "Dunce" I use to cringe whenever I hear others use it as a reference to another. But we must move away from harming ourselves with these poisonous words that only seeks to destroy us and further make us belive we are worth nothing. Let us seek to only use words to build, motivate and encourage. Eg..I am a conqueror, I am amazing, I can, I am brilliant and watch what happens when you say these words daily.
