Another poster idea for the classroom. Before you speak.THINK! From: Lead.
Before you speak.THINK! Is it true? Is it helpful? Is it inspiring? Is it necessary? Is it kind? - Sayings / Quotes/ Words of Wisdom
One of my favorite ideas ever. I heard an evangelist say it once and thought it was perfect. For some odd reason I attract a lot of people who live by the "I'm just telling the truth no matter what" philosophy.
I understand the issue, but the same people told Martin Luther King and Gandhi not to disturb people. Sometimes you must speak the Truth even when it disturbs people. Always keep it non violent, but stand up always for humanity.
Before you speak...THINK!
Before you speak. Think! If only more people would live by this.
I'm sorry is a statement. I won't do it again is a promise. is a responsibility. This is why "I'm sorry" a hundred times from a partner about the same things doesn't work. A quality relationship yearns for the responsibility.
Too bad some people can't even take responsibility and apologize when they hurt someone. They blame everyone else for what they did and continue to play the victim. Some things will never change I guess.
Good lesson for kids! A true apology has three parts: I'm sorry. It wont happen again. Not just for kids. It's a good lesson for everyone!
I agree. The things I can't change sometimes do change me because I learn to "live life on life's terms." I am open to learning patience and courage, among other things, from the things I cannot change.
