“If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.”
From http://engagingpeace.com/ “prettying up” the language of war.
- “Friendly fire”
- “Collateral damage”
- “Servicing the Target”
Making the language pretty suggests that war it isn’t about killing people and breaking things.
I would suggest that it is equally true of other relationships and is toxic to all relationships in the long run.
