In this world, there are many different languages and many more words that we all use to communicate. What do the words really mean though? I remember reading a book titled "Frindle", which is about a fifth grade boy that makes up his own word (frindle) instead of using the word pen. Does it really matter what we call it as long as everybody involved knows what they're talking about? Even William Shakespeare had Juliet say "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Just because we change the word used, doesn't mean that the thing changes. At which point, why are curse words considered "bad"? They only have a bad meaning if you want them to. If people think that words can hurt you, they're wrong. Words can only make us stronger. Don't get in a fight, beat your opponent in a battle of wits. Lately, people in my life have shown me that words have no real meaning and you can't care about the ones that they use if you're going to be who you are and follow your dreams. If you're a friend to somebody, don't lie to them. Be honest with them and tell them how you feel using actions. Actions speak louder than words sometimes. You just need to know how to use both in the off chance that your first option fails. You should always know who you're dealing with to decide what way to go in resolving a situation. Good luck with the many situations that may come up in your life and hopefully this helped. :) If anybody has a problem that they want discussed her, feel free to leave a comment.
