The Damage of the But.....

So many times in our lives we say words that are meant to convey happiness or love; only to back it up with a buttttttt

Do You But?

How many times have you looked at someone; your child, your spouse, your parents, your employee and said to them.

You are doing a great job, BUT.....
I Love You, BUT.....
I put gas in the car, BUT.....
I think you are a great person, BUT.....
I would do that for you, BUT......

When we tell someone how we feel and we add that tiny word it negates all that we have said.


A BUT expressed in a sigh

I recently realized that I BUT quite a bit.
I can say that I don't think I give someone props or tell them I think they are great and then add BUT into the mix....However, I sigh....

When ask to do something that I have to stop what I am doing at the time to do, I sigh. Breathing out though my nose at a fast pace, giving the outward impression that I don't want to do what was ask of me....which in all honesty I do not want to do because I am busy with other things at that moment.

A BUT expressed in a sigh is, I have learned just as emotionally damaging as any BUT expressed in a word.

A BUT or a SIGH is a sign to the one you are speaking to that you are displeased with something. It is better to simply just say what you need to say; without leading up to it.
I love you said with affection in your voice is an important thing to say to all those you do; you never know when it will be the last time you get a chance for them to hear it.
I love you, BUT, means that you are displeased
Dad, I put gas in the car on the way home. BUT, I used your credit card....

Somehow, this just does not work.....


But, Emotional Pain, Happiness, Love, Pain
