Do you ever look back at some of the things you have said in the past? If so, how do you feel when looking back at them? Often times, when people look back at their past, they focus on the negative aspects; like the hurtful things they have said to others or, even worse, the hurtful things others have said to them. Most people don’t realize that their words are so powerful and that their spoken language has such an impact on their relationships with friends and family members, not to mention the lasting impression it leaves on complete strangers you meet on your daily travels throughout life.
Weigh your words. They are the pearls of your life. Don’t throw them, don’t lose them for anything.
Too many times people say things that they regret or say things that aren’t true, even if what they were saying wasn’t wrong.
The Power of Words
Words are powerful. As a writer, I know that to be true. But as a speaker and as a human being, it’s important to always be cognizant of how your words can affect those around you.
The Consequences of carelessly Throwing Away Your Words
When you speak, it is not just your words that will be heard. It is also the tone in which you speak and how you carry yourself. That tone speaks volumes about your character and the impression you want to make on those listening. This is why it’s important to weigh your words before throwing them away carelessly; not just for yourself but for those around you as well.
The Importance of Choosing Your Words Carefully
It’s easy to let words fly without thinking about them, but they carry a lot more weight than we give them credit for. We may not consciously realize it, but a lot can be gleaned from what we say, and people will judge us based on it. This is why it’s important to take a second to consider your words before you speak.
How to Weigh Your Words
Weigh your words. They are the pearls of your life.
Don’t throw them. Don’t lose them for anything.
If you have to choose between what is right and what is kind, choose what is right. If you have to choose between what is true and what people want to hear, always choose what’s true. And if you have to choose between being honest and being clever, always be honest.
This post is to remind you that your words have power. You can use them to be a force for good in the world. But there is a flip side, using them carelessly or without self-awareness can do damage not just to yourself but those around you. So think before you speak and choose your words wisely.
