So, I'm posting this quite late into Wednesday (it's almost Thursday on my side of the world), because I was having some technical difficulties for the post originally intended for today!
However, that post will go up next week and it gives me the opportunity to share something quite thought-provoking with you guys for today's post ☺️
"The Weapon of Choice Project was conceived to provide a graphic demonstration of the invisible pain caused by verbal abuse, It is meant to provoke a conversation about the problems of domestic violence, child abuse, and bullying." It was created in 2014, but I only recently discovered it.
It's a take on what would happen if verbal abuse left scars, just as physical abuse does. Would the physical manifestation cause it to be taken more seriously? Photographer Richard Johnson captured that in his photo project.
Bruises and Scars. Violent Marks. Embedded with hateful words.
The main takeaway for me from this project is:
What if verbal abuse left the same scars as physical abuse.
It's an inspired creative vision and a meaningful message.
And - it's things like this that again make me wonder, why do we waste time on and put energy into negativity, when we could be doing the exact opposite (have you had a chance to read this post?).
New blog post will be up next wednesday!
Until then, you can follow me on -

Have a great rest of the week!
