I Think Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,029 People

    After the week I've had,

    I can see who my true friends are. It's been a really rough and draining week, emotionally, mentally and physically. It's hard because I'm so different from my friends it seems. If one of my friends, or my friends parents were in pain or danger, I would be checking in daily to...

    Show Me Don'T Tell Me

    I have always been like this. It has nothing to do with the fact my husband's actions have always meant he hated me. Before all that, it was the same. I have never been affected by sweet talk, compliments and praise.It just doesn't resonate with me. Not sure why, even in college...

    Actions will always speak louder

    than words. People can say whatever they want, but if their actions don't show it then their words mean nothing really.

    The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It

    This is a statement I have always believed and tried to live by, actions will always speak louder than words. I am not one to talk about something, and if I do then I am going to do it, without a doubt. Life is for the people who are willing to go and grab it, not the ones who...

    Talking is easy. It is the actions

    which are difficult. I would rather have one strong, beautiful gesture, than a thousand spoken words.

    I tend to judge people only

    after they act rather then based on just their words. This means I give them the benefit of the doubt, and leaves me vulnerable. But, it also helps me to make a better decision about a person'a character.

    Said Another Way....

    I have a mentor that says it this way, "What you do speaks so loudly, what you say i can not hear!" I love listening to him, he has learned so much and has a unique way of taking out of the box to look at things just enough different to learn too. :)

    How High Is Your Balance In Your Emotional Bank Account?

    so mean? There are good people too of course. Then there are those who act nice but aren't. They suck you into their lies. They make you feel safe then cut you deep. It's appalling that these people prey on the lonely and insecure. Even more so the emotions released are a blend...

    One of the hardest things to do in life is walk

    Some people are so good with words.

    There are a lot that will say the rights words at the right time but it's always the actions that matter. I judge through actions not words. 👍👍

    as you say. Bottom line. Actions mean more then words sometimes. Granted words are nice but deserve action behind them.

    I am a person of a few words.

    I show my feeling through action and yet it's the loud one who got all the credit. It's so bitter I can only laugh. I don't express it in words but it doesn't lessen the deep of my feeling.

    I believed what a man's words told me about him.

    I fell in love with him and he with me. We spent the last nearly two weeks together at his home. He just drove "us" back to my home, ostensibly so that I could take care of things in order to become his ... I don't even know what. When he'd put all of my luggage in the cart...

    I cannot stress enough how true this is.

    Don't get me wrong, words can have a wonderful affect on people but actions stay a lot longer with someone vs unproven words.

    I hate so talk before I do something.

    Because I get jittery and I really wanna move. So simply put, I don't talk about it. I just do it. When my friends need help in something I don't talk to them, I just help. When they have problems or are depressed, I don't talk, I hit them on the head and say cheer up. Then I go...

    Showing Somebody You Care.

    When did it become bad, for people to show another that they care about them? I don't mean, saying, I love you or I care about you. I believe in showing the person(s). Do something nice for the person you care about everyday.

    A lot of people tend to promise something

    but like what other people say.. "All promises are made to be broken." So do his promises that's why I never trust words. The last time I believed in those, I got fooled.
