Words shape what we think of many things ourselves and others. The things we see and even what we want. They help us share knowledge, tech others, and past down our ways. Without words the world we be a very different place than we know today. Maybe it wouldn’t even be civilized or even advanced past the Stone Age. Words make things happen and words keep things from happening. Even the smallest words of yes and no can stop or starts wars. Words can bring peace to a war-torn society and war to the most peaceful of people.
With that in mind what we say is very important whether it be about someone else or about ourselves. It’s a simple thing to control but yet so hard, we speak at the moment out of strong emotion. When we do we say things that can be very counterproductive to our lives and the lives of others. And though it may not seem like much at the time, actually it seems like it doesn’t have any effect at all. Which is very untrue, words have a profound effect on the world around us and the people even ourselves.
It’s just a thought.
