Who we end up becoming in life is not just a function of the information we are exposed to, but most importantly, a function of what we do with the information we are exposed to.
It has been said, and I at the moment agree, that you cannot stop a bird from flying over your head, but you can stop it from nesting on your head. I came across a very inspiring article that has this statement:
It is not what people do to you that hurts, it is how you take what people do to you that hurts. (paraphrased).
The situations around you is not the problem, but the way you handle them is.
I believe it is no longer news that the power of life and death lies in the tongue. What comes out of your mouth is a product that was manufactured in your heart using the information you are exposed to as raw materials. Those things that come out of you have the potential to kill or make alive. It all depends on how you handle them.
The truth is that the processed information in our hearts have a way of finding themselves to our mouth. When they get to your mouth, you have two options: either to swallow them again or let them out. I will not advise you to swallow them again, that will be suicidal. I strongly recommend you let them out, good or bad.
One of the downsides of swallowing those things that come to your mouth is that they will bloat you up. I may not be a nutritionist, but bloating is not a condition that anyone will deliberately decide to accommodate. The same way, it is not healthy to take in food and not ingest the digested product, it is equally harmful to your future and destiny to keep processed information in your mind and not let them out. If you must have a healthy destiny, you have to let out all the processed information in your mind. Are you burdened with a weight of processed information in your heart, LET THEM OUT!
A Happy New Month To You!
