Are You Using a Dark Vocabulary?

Be mindful of the power of the words that you use to describe yourself or to even use while thinking about yourself.  Those words, that vocabulary, has the power to shape you.  Caroline Myss reminds us of that power when she says:

In order to maintain a wound, in order to maintain an image, a dark image, you have to maintain a dark vocabulary. You have to haunt yourself, in other words.  You have to have a dark vocabulary . . . . constantly retelling haunting tales to yourself or about somebody.
