Your Words can Make Others Feel…

I just flew back from Chicago last night

While at a recent meeting there  with Pediatricians from all over North America I learned something new…..

Obesity is not the term they like anymore….it is now called  “not being at your healthy weight”.

When it comes to vaccines they do not like the term “alternative vaccine schedule” It is now called “non– standard schedule” (The term “non- approved” was defeated and the thinking is that it is better to stick to standards….thus “non-standard”)

The point is? Our words matter a great deal. Pay close attention to your terminology.

I once heard it said that we rarely remember what was said as much as how we felt when we heard those words. Its true indeed. It explains why some great politicians and pastors became influential.

Watch your word closely !
