I am guilty of nagging! Girls, who are not?
It’s been always easy for us to say those nagging words without even thinking of how our partner’s feel or how our children may feel or how those who are under us feel.
Does it helps build relationship or does it break?
Let’s read this poem I made putting myself in the perspective of my partner. I hope that as I see the truth behind these words, you also find time to contemplate on its effectiveness on building a lasting relationship.
Watch your words diligently
For it may bless or break me
Please don’t speak carelessly
You’ll break my heart can’t you see?
Do you need help in wielding
This mighty power responsibly?
Cause your quick witted retorts
Most often hurt me instantly
Be quick to listen, my dear
Be slow to speak
Don’t easily become angry
Please don’t make me weak
Use your words positively
To build our partnership
Appreciate me for goodness sake!
I long for peaceful relationship
