This exercise has let me understand that I cannot continue to live my life using these words. There is a quote that I once hear in a movie that says: "Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game". It uses the game of baseball and compares it to the game that is life. In other words, you can't be afraid of failure because this will keep you from success. These words that represent prohibition are very damaging to one's outlook of life and can harm a persons confidence. For this reason, I will have as a goal to use less and less of these words, and instead more positive, loving, and reassuring words.
