Words to Avoid: “You can’t do anything right.”

These words are an attack on the other person’s competence and worth. They cut to the core value of a person and make them feel worthless. This is emotionally or verbally abusive.

You might be frustrated at something, but saying such words is not the way to deal with those frustrations. Everyone has flaws and everyone makes mistakes sometimes. Check in with your expectations.
