Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Will Never Hurt Me.........WRONG!!!

Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Will Never Hurt Me.........WRONG!!!

The notion that words cannot hurt is absolutelyWRONG!The most powerful and constant force that we cannot escape is our language. Whether it's the words we say to ourselves in our heads, the words we say about ourselves aloud to others, or the words people use when speaking to us. These words thread into our consciousness and unconsciousness and not only create an emotional reaction but influence how we view ourselves and the world around us.

The Naked Truth

Reality:We currently live in a world driven by the media. From the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, Magazines, TV shows, “Reality shows”, Commercials, Billboards, and everywhere.
 
 
Fantasy:We should all look like the men and women that we see in the media.
 
 
Reality:Everyday we are flooded by images and messages of the “ideal self”. The covers of magazines are consistently flashed with headlines stating “Lose 10 pounds in 10 days” or “How to have Flatter Abs.” These headlines are then plastered next to the picture of a celebrity that looks flawless.
