Two myths debunked

Myth: “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.”

I beg to differ. The way you play the game is important, for sure, but whether you win or lose also matters a great deal. Yes, winning matters. If you aren’t playing to win, then why are you playing?

Myth: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”

Oh yes they can. Words are incredibly powerful. They can uplift and affirm; they can also degrade and destroy.
