Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety weighs down the heart,

but a kind word cheers it up.

It’s not just about receiving a kind word.

It’s the giving of a kind word, too. It can really change a spirit when it’s down to seek out ways to give out a kind word. It’s hard to stay down when you go say something kind to someone that could use it and see it lift them. Changes perspective from being all about me to realizing it really isn’t.
