Buoys and Anchors
Words spoken may not seem like much, but in truth, they carry so much power.
Think of people as tiny boats out in the big ocean.
When you use words to criticize, judge, or condemn, you're adding heavy weights to those boats. You never know when one that you say may be the last one the boat could take before it sinks forever.
On the other hand, words that are inspiring, encouraging, uplifting, those words are like buoys. They help to keep the boat afloat, no matter how much weight it's already taken on.
While it's true, that it is up to the boat how strong it is, despite all buoys and weights, remember that no boat, no person, is unsinkable.
We could all use a little lift.
