We use language to communicate our thoughts, be it to convey fear or comfort. When we express ourselves to others, strong relationships are cultivated. When we talk to those closest to us, including our family, we are looking for acceptance and to be appreciated as our own individual. Sadly, often times we are met by harsh and personal judgments. And the worst part is, because we are close to the person, possibly even family, we remember all conversations with them, to which we draw further meaning.
