The power of words for our brain
The words you send to your loved ones or repeat to yourself is very important. Indeed, they leave an imprint on your brain because they transmit emotions. As such, they strengthen social ties, but they also have the power to trigger the thinking and imagination that will enable you to keep moving forward. If hurtful words make us suffer and sometimes even leave scars on us, so do words of encouragement and words of love or love letters. They act like plasters for our souls and make our backs grow wings. So words are never in vain!
In difficult times, everyday life can sometimes take a back seat. So don’t hesitate, in addition to your message of encouragement, to offer your help, and don’t be too insistent if the person refuses. Perhaps they don’t want to see anyone. If it’s you who’s in a bad way, ask for help from someone you trust, someone whose judgment you won’t fear. Not allowing yourself to be overwhelmed by daily obligations also helps you to get back on your feet more quickly.
