Kill Suicide

Yes, she is not married. Stop asking her everytime you speak when is she getting married. You would know when the time is up. You go like “You, when will you marry?”
Yes, she got married a year ago, and hasn’t had a baby. Stop asking her when the baby is coming. You would know if her bump showed. You go like “is everything ok?”
Yes, she is still looking for a job so many years after Uni. Can you help? If not, have u realized she gets so uncomfortable anytime you go on and on about your colleagues at work etc. You go like “being at home is really good for you”
Yes, you can tell she is struggling financially. Stop rubbing it in her face with how many properties you have acquired and what projects you are embarking on.
Yes, she is a size up. Stop telling her everyday you see her, how much weight she has put on. I’m sure she knows when she has to buy a size up anytime she goes shopping.
I can go on and on and on. Do you know what you are doing? You are killing her slowly. Very soon, you would be a murderer without knowing.

Before you speak, just take a second and think about this… Would your words hurt or dampen someone’s spirit. Do you speak to indirectly mock people? Do you utter words that discourage people or make them feel like they are just down there?
What happened to encouraging people. What happened to refraining from speaking so much about your success to friends who you know are still trying to make it in life. What happened to avoiding obvious sensitive issues in people’s life when you have a conversation.
People smile and laugh no matter what is thrown at them. That’s their defensive mechanism. Don’t think they laugh and therefore mean they are not hurt. Hmmmm, If only you knew what was going on in that mind.
Lets be genuine friends. Lets save a life. Lets not be emotional murderers.

    Kill suicide… I think Tom Cruise would like to star in it..lol
    Anyways, you know, some people do not really get the power of words, they can be seeds and like seeds they grow differently in different conditions and at different rates. You might not have ill intentions, you might have gone with the moment, but you just didn’t know you planted a seed.
    I think it just has to do with understanding the other person and learning to know and be conscious of his/her sensitive issues and handling them right.
