Words Can Make Or Break You

Words can make or break you, your career, as we have seen with Paula Deen.

Paula Deen mentioned words that offended many people. She apologized. I'm sure, on any given day, she wished those words never escaped through her lips.

Still, she can't take the words back. People have been hurt, offended, by Deen's remarks. The reason or time the words were used makes no direction.

When a perspn's actions offend, those actions has to be addressed.

It goes back to what a person does, good or bad, comes back.

Deen and her sons explained how she in't a racist.

However, the words she used was racist. Why use those words if her feelings/thinking were different.

People tend to use comfortable words out of habit. Sometimes, a word is spoken that you're use to hearing/saying or grew up with.

Still, no one can or should offend because it's their way of doing, living.

I can't say it enough: Think before speaking.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
