|This was floating around facebook tonight.|
Quite fitting for my post.
I will also see people joking about having brain tumors. I'm sure everyone at some point thinks it's absolutely funny to blame their oddities and headaches on a tumor. Having lived through this ordeal I can tell you it's absolutely not funny. These tumors have destroyed my life and I do not find it amusing one bit. They have stolen at least eighteen years of my life from me. Years that I should have been able to spend in the prime of my youth, but instead I feel 90 and I'm only 36. It is not funny.
I guess my point in this post is mostly to just think about your words. Think about the looks you give someone. Try not to be so judgmental. Those looks and words can harm someone for the rest of their lives. Look at them and give them a smile or say something kind. I promise those type of words and actions will also be remembered just as much as the hateful ones.
Your words have power, use them wisely.
