Abuse isn't only physical because immense damage can be done to your inner man, your emotional well being, through vicious, cruel and hateful words. Its called emotional and mental abuse. And no, its not ok.
If you've endured that and are now in the process of healing these words will help.
Words may have torn you down but recognise words are a two edged sword, able to cut and yet able to heal.
Life is in the power of the tongue. Change your words to change the way you feel. If someone else's negative words have pained you here is what you do.
Say these declarations every morning and evening for 30 days. Say them with feeling and emotion and with intention. Speak clearly. Let your voice be strong. Your voice is your instrument.
