Do you have a difficult feeling while being around certain people? Do certain people make you feel relaxed and help you smile? Some people, even strangers can make you feel comfortable and some others, even those you know from years can make you feel uneasy with what comes out of their mouth. Many a time people find it easy to criticize than to compliment, tear down than to lift someone up, insult than to be respectful, be hateful than to be loving, and complain than to appreciate. The impact of such words is so intense at times, that they could ruin someone’s career, relationships, dreams, health and life.
What you say is a window to what’s in your heart, and it reveals your intentions, whether good or evil. You can be a cause of motivation or devastation in the lives of those who hear what you say. But, the power of what you say impacts your own life too. It can make or break relationships, bring you peace and health or sleepless nights and sickness. Contemplating upon the consequences of what you’ve already spoken can’t undo it’s impact and will only bring regret. Rather, being wise with your choice of words, reflecting upon your intentions and speaking with the right words to let people know what’s on your mind, can help you avoid regrets or bitterness.
Differing from each other in the way we perceive life, the way we feel, the way we think, feel or live can’t justify careless talk, as it impacts not only your own life, but also of those around you, making the atmosphere around you unfriendly and filled with negativity, that doesn’t attract anything good, but only bitterness and anxiety. No matter how one feels, the approach used can either convey the right message and help the person or cause unrest and portray the person in a negative light. Speaking out of sarcasm, vengeance, envy, rage, hatred or pride can get you in trouble sooner or later rather than serving your purpose. It is wise to have a control on what you say and avoid unwanted trouble.
No matter how less or much you speak, what you say matters more than how much you speak.
