I love Rabbi PLiskin's podcasts. His words touch the soul.As someone who has experienced a lot of verbal abuse from others (don't know why, sometimes I think it's because others see me as weak, w. not a lot of self esteem) the Rabbi's words touched my heart and yes I can fully agree that words do hurt and limit another's person's potential! It's so important to be conscious of how you use your words- better to use fewer words and let them uplift others then use many to bring others down. Thanks very much for the important lesson. Please keep your inspiring lectures coming!
