Why Be Mean? by Gidget Giardino

In the book The Four Agreements, it clearly states (in massive repetition) to be impeccable with your word. Meaning, when you speak with others you need to be honest without being unkind. When you make negative or nasty comments to someone else it imprints them with bad feelings about themselves, and maybe even you. 

If you think about it, in most cases, you really have no reason to say negative or unkind words. The bad thoughts running through your mind are more about you than they are about the person you are with. Realize this is what is happening and only focus on the positive. 

You choose how you feel. 
Choose to be HAPPY, 
choose to be POSITIVE, 
choose to be GREAT.


  1. That's so true Gidget. It's too bad the whole world doesn't think like you do.

  2. Needless to say, Gidget, I love reading this post because I so like the message of "The Four Agreements." The other important thing is to be impeccable with your word to yourself. When people say "I'm so stupid" or "I always (fill in some negative word)" that is what they are programming into their minds. In order to be kind to others, we must be kind to ourselves.
