It’s only words, and words are all I have,
to take your heart away…
I agree, that actions speak louder than words, but, isn’t it also true, that our words do have the strength to not only take away someone’s heart, but also break it in a thousand pieces?
Words spoken with love, from the bottom of the heart, words of encouragement, of motivation, words of wisdom, spoken at the exact moment, words of advice, offered subtly and discreetly- they all have the desired effect. Words – they can actually turn a life around! Can you imagine the enormous power our words have?
We humans have been blessed with the ability to speak – think and speak. But, do we ever give a thought to the effect our words can have on someone, especially, when uttered in the heat of the moment? We just go with the flow – the flow of our emotions – and say things that have the capacity to ruin a life. Don’t we know, that words once uttered can never be taken back?
I have met people, whose words have lifted my morale, helped me find my bearings, motivated me to give my best shot. Words uttered with warmth and love by my family and friends, words typed with affection, and a purity of heart, by my virtual friends – thanks to them, I am here, writing my 168th post, completing a challenge I had chickened out of! There, truly, has been a lot I learnt from these wonderful people, who have played with words in such a way, it has had a positive effect on my life.
Really, if we have been blessed with an ability to express ourselves through words, why don’t we use it to spread love and good cheer among our fellow humans? And, make our Maker proud! Wouldn’t it be a far more peaceful place to live in?
Let’s choose our words with care.
