THE TONGUE LASHER - 80/365
"Excuse me, I hope you don't mind if I exercise my tongue while we talk. I use it frequently to give people what they deserve so I must keep it fit. It takes a lot if strength to spit out the words that keep people in line or put them in their place. Such a little muscle for such a big responsibility wouldn't you say?"
I've often wondered if a "tongue lashing" is a sign of strength or a sign of weakness. Would a "tongue-lashing" even be necessary if I didn't somehow feel "vulnerable" and in need of defending myself?
Perhaps it takes "strength" to share feelings and "courage" to do it without "lashing-out."
Is there really such a thing as a "good" tongue-lashing?
