I think about how people speak when I think about the tone of anything. By this I mean weather the person is angry of sad or if there happy. This come to mind because you can tell a lot about what’s on a person’s mind by just how they say something for instance, you can tell if someone is worried even though they just said there day was great and they sat at home and did nothing, but there tone will tell you something is wrong and even though they say one thing they mean something completely different. I know this is true because there is one person that always manages to do that to me. Moreover, no matter how great I say my day was the first thing she asks is what is wrong. And even when she speaks, I can always tell what mood she is in or if something is bothering her no matter what she says.
From what I have seen in my past, it seems as though a person’s tone is more important than what they actually say. I have actually found this out the hard way while making a simple joke that was taken the wrong way and turned out what they took from it had nothing to do with what I said but because of the way I said it, it seam different. Also, if tone is used in the correct manner then it can not only help get what you are trying to say across. But it can also help change the way things are taken such as when giving bad news, so that the effect is lessened.
So my thought for today is very simple watch how things are said so that you do not say one thing and a person thinks that you are saying something else. Also, it never hurt to say things more than once in different ways to make sure you are understood in the correct manner. So be careful how you speak and what you are say is matching you tone
