Words Can Be More Hurtful Than Actions!

Power Of WordsWhile physical pain is terrible, and nobody should ever lay a hand on another human being except when absolutely necessary, very often verbal abuse can be just, or even more, harmful to the victim.

What we say, and how we say it, can have long-term consequences, so before you speak, always think things through.

Control your temper, and refrain from acting out impulsively, because, even if you apologize after slipping up and saying something you shouldn’t have, the proverbial cat is already out of the bag and can never be completely wiped away, much the same way that even when a trial judge upholds an objection in court, what was testified to cannot be totally disregarded by the jury!

It’s all about control, intelligence, compassion and feelings, and, simply put, treating others the same way we want to be treated.

Respect goes a long way in this world, so always keep on your toes about how you interact with others.

This way, when you take a look in the mirror, you can feel good about the person who is staring right back at you!

If you haven’t read my book, “Jew in Jail” yet, I hope you do.

It is chock full of insightful information on how I was able to recover from my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling while incarcerated, and go on to lead a happy and healthful life.

Until next time, everyone, have a great day, and week ahead!

About gman18

I came into the world on October 18, 1961. John F. Kennedy was President of the United States. The film West Side Story was released, and would go on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Major League Baseball was celebrating Roger Maris of the New York Yankees, who hit a then-record 61 home runs that season. I was an excellent student, although a bit of a class clown too. I spent a majority of my time playing sports, but fell in love with newspapers, which was how I was initially introduced into writing and storytelling. While attending Kingsborough Community College from 1979-1981, I served as editor-in-chief of the school's paper, and then joined the staff at Long Island University's Seawanhaka for my junior and senior years. At L.I.U. where I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism in 1983, I was also a selected member of Sigma Delta Chi, as well as Who's Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges. My last year in college included an unpaid internship at WCBS-TV, Channel 2 in New York City, where I learned so much about the television business. Upon graduation, I landed a job at the network, starting as a news clerk for The CBS Morning News with Diane Sawyer, and also weekend shifts for The NFL Today with Brent Musburger. After quickly rising in the ranks to producer, my life suddenly went on a downward spiral due to addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling, which ultimately led to nearly six years behind bars for robbery. My time incarcerated gave birth to my first published book, Jew in Jail, which tells my true story of how I finally decided to deal with my addictions and turn my life around, all the while under the toughest conditions imaginable of being a minority in the prison system, forced to fend for myself. Writing Jew in Jail - as I was doing my time - allowed me to become very introspective, and realize that I could help others in similar situations of being an addict and/or living with low self-esteem. Today, I still reside in my hometown of Brooklyn, New York, where I am working on my next book project, continuing to promote Jew in Jail, and always helping other addicts through my motivational and inspirational speeches, and one-on-one consultations.
