Nettle on a Field of Stone

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Those words are more powerful than many people realize.
It's a mystery why someone would feel compelled to try and make others feel bad about themselves or their work. I think there are many factors:
Jealousy, inferior complexes, ignorance, and down right spite. Whatever the cause, words have the ability to cause lasting damage.
But that's only true if you provide those seeds with a fertile place in your mind. Otherwise they die like nettle on field of stone.


  1. Jilda's post made me think something hurtful has happened and I hope she's feeling better today. Words can wound much deeper than being physically harmed sometimes. I don't know what compels people to be mean or spiteful..they probably don't either or they wouldn't do it.

  2. It's very healthy plant.
    I was once at village at my grammy
    and she cooked nettle with some kind of pasta and i was so charmed with it that i must learn now how to cook it by myself.
