Words don’t come easy to me.. yes, they do! :)))
Words. So powerful. They can give you wings. They can cut your wings. Choose them wisely. They are like a tool in your hands.. by knowing how to handle it you will repair or damage things.
We have to pick our words. I think if everyone sticks to their given word, it wouldn’t be necessary to use this: Actions speak louder than words, because obviously every single person would do what he said. Yet reality is quite different. Lots of people say things just to say them, without actually meaning them.. to impress others, to achieve something, to manipulate. What lies behind all these things is the intention of the person who is saying it. That’s how you hurt others, playing with their emotions, and leaving them waiting for something you have promised. Soooo nooooot nice is the kindest expression I have found to express my point of view for these kind of people. People with no integrity, no character. Empty words. Empty them. Don’t be one of them. Please.
We all have to start with ourselves.
Intention is, oh, so very important. Intention of saying or doing something utterly speaks about ourselves and who we are. So if you think one thing, say something different and do something completely contrary what does it say about you? What is your intention of saying something you don’t think? Or doing something you don’t say? What is the intention of lying? Do you play with others people’s emotions by using words? Does this make you a good person? And being a good, decent, kind person is what matters the most.
Things in life would be so much easier if we learn how to communicate. I think a school subject should exist “Learning communication”. Instead of learning sinus, cosine. At least it would be useful, later in life.
Actually, communication, in my opinion is not that difficult. It is the way of expressing your thoughts and emotions. Speaking your mind with your heart. Finding the way of how to say things is also very important. If you want to solve some problem with another person you have to speak.. it all begins with words, actually your thoughts, emotions, transformed into words. Staying true to yourself with no intention of hurting others is the key.
Words once spoken can’t be taken back.. So before you say something think about these things:
What is my intention?
Am I speaking the truth?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?
If you can’t bring out the best in others with your words, if you can’t be kind, if you can’t be honest, then kindly shut your mouth. And stay in the corner until you learn how to speak. Silence is better than bullshit.
Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.
