    A Good Reason To Think Before You Speak !?

    Words hold much more power than people think. I have witnessed first hand the damage that words can cause, especially when being spoken by someone cruel and heartless. When a child is called names and told they are worthless and will never be anything but a burden to every one...

    The power of words is not complete,

    without emotion tied to each. Words represent, emotions spent, used wisely...what a treat!

    Words are singularly the most powerful force

    available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. Yehuda Berg

    Anxiety weighs down the heart,

    but a kind word cheers it up. (Proverbs 12:25) A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up. (Proverbs 15:1) Kind words are like honey--sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. (Proverbs 16:24) Words kill, words give life; they're either poison...

    Words can bring life

    or death. They can tear down or build up. They can inspire or dampen spirits. What words do you dwell on today ? What words will you speak out or share?

    They say that, "actions speaks louder

    I definitely do. The phrase "sticks

    and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" is CRAP! Most wounds heal but words stick with you, for a LONG time. Think about what you say before you say it.

    I believe that everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they go right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    The thing people forget is how good it can feel

    when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they are out in the open...like it or not. Once your secrets are out in the open, you don't have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is, even when you think you're in control, you're not.

    Words are a funny thing really,

    you could be reading this in a certain way and then when you start writing in capital letters YOU SORT OF YELL IN YOUR HEAD. Or even that some words are spelt the same but may have a complete different meaning... Trippy **** I think.

    Words leave their mark far longer

    than any physical pain can. Even if you are left with physical scars, you learn to accept them as part of you. The pain dissipates, the scars fade, and they become a reminder of something that happened to you once. Words; they linger, they reappear, they never quite leave you...
