That word is used too much in the English language.
A terrible human being. A terrible father. A terrible husband. A terrible employee. A terrible friend. A terrible driver.
On and on that list often goes.
Do you ever get to the point where you just raise your hands toward the heavens and scream at the top of your lungs, “Am I ever not terrible?”
Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words do internal damage! Words leave permanent scars. Far deeper ones than physical wounds.
Can’t resist pointing out someone else’s terribleness?
Look first in your mirror.
