Words are incredibly powerful. They can make or break a person’s self-esteem. They can encourage or discourage a person from doing something they desperately wish to. Words can heal. Words can also hurt. A kind word at the right time can do wonders. Words can break your relationships. Or they can mend them. Be careful of what you say. As a person who’s always gotten into trouble with parents, friends and teachers alike for saying the wrong things at the wrong time, I often think that I don’t have a brain-to-mouth filter. It’s not that I don’t try to stop myself from saying inappropriate things, it’s just very difficult for me. I really can’t stop myself from saying things that pop into my head. Often the things that I say are funny or sarcastic, and people have a good laugh because of it. But sometimes, my words hurt people. And that, in turn, makes me feel guilty.
So, watch what you say and you’ll learn so much about yourself. It sounds so easy, ‘think before you speak’, when in fact it’s terribly hard. People don’t think before they speak. They become defensive when they feel as if they’re being confronted, leading to them using the wrong powerful words to hurt the person in front of them.
Therefore, I encourage you, the reader, to try and figure out how exactly your words can change your life. Use the right words and see the person light up in happiness. Use the right words and see the world change in front of your eyes. Use the right words and change your life, your relationships, your own mindset. Use your words.
