The power of words cannot be under estimated. It is not always people who hurt us as much as their words do. Perhaps we all live such rush-filled lives that we don't even pause to think before we say something that can be hurtful. Sometimes words can make you cry. Think about this when you feel tempted to use words to hit back.
Words have tremendous power. They have life. They spark love, hate and a melange of emotions in the human mind. They trigger actions and reactions that have far-reaching implications in an individual's life.
When you offer hope and compassion, it lights up a person's life. When you criticize someone without thinking about how deeply it hurts that person, it is your words that will never be forgotten by that person.
Have you ever recalled the words of those who have hurt your feelings? Then you would know the importance of using words with more care and compassion.
Pause and think of the most beautiful words some one special has said to you. As you reflect on it, the heart seems to burst with lightness and an array of sensations that may range from happiness to pleasure.
Do you feel the silken sweet words slide over you like smooth soap on your skin?
Imagine how beautiful the world and how happy everyone would be if we used words with care and not with an intention to hurt or to judge or to belittle others.
Yet as a writer, I find some words turn elusive when I try to grasp it within my reach. Words such as 'Help me' or 'I need a break' are very difficult to say. Do you face that dilemma too? Have you ever felt deeply inspired and moved by words that came your way?
