Tag Archives: Saying


Gigi of Rethinking Life posted recently about old sayings that are no longer valid and need to go away or be replaced with new sayings. It got me thinking…


They say, “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”

On the surface that is good…we shouldn’t be mean and hurtful to others.

BUT sometimes the truth hurts and the truth needs to be heard.

So new sayings:

“If you are speaking true

Say it proudly

If they don’t want to hear you

Say it loudly!”


“Not everyone will want to hear it.  

Not everyone will listen.

Lots of people will not like it.  

But it is your job to speak it.  

The Truth”
