True, Kind, Necessary

True, Kind and Necessary are three tests to apply to words before we speak them, and only that which meets all three should be spoken. I consider myself a secular Buddhist, and find great insight in the words attributed to Siddhartha, as well as many of those who have followed in his footsteps. This board is for positive words that inspire mindfulness and loving-kindness.

Make Promises Sparingly and keep them faithfully. Never miss the opportunity to compliment and encourage. Refuse to talk negatively, don't partake in gossip. Before you speak, think how you would feel in the receiver's place.
