What hurtful words reveal

Perhaps today someone at work will say something that will hurt you, undeservedly. If not today, that day will come.

The ethical leader will remember that the words themselves have no power other than that which we ascribe to them.

Such hurtful words reveal the speaker’s pain, not the target’s true character. Understanding this will allow us to quickly let go of the anger that might naturally arise.

And let go we must, so that no more victims are made.
