The power of words

Words have a lot of influence on one’s life, and they can have a negative or positive effect on an individual. Yehuda Berg once said, “Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble.” That is why we must exercise caution, as our choice of words, especially when we are angry, may often reflect the truth of what we really feel and want to say.

Emotions have an odd way of taking over the person we are or were supposed to be at times, which can be difficult in certain circumstances, particularly if it results in pain or guilt for you or anyone else.

“Be mindful when it comes to your words. A string of some that don’t mean much to you, may stick with someone else for a lifetime.”

Rachel Wolchin

As a result, we should not talk simply to get things off our chest without taking into account the feelings of others, because words have the power to make or break an individual. Words spoken are irreversible. The biggest mistake we can make is to believe that our words have little effect on the lives of others. Similar to written words, spoken words cannot be forgotten. When anyone thinks about you, it could be the only thing that comes to mind.

We can make a difference today by understanding that our words have power, meaning, and the potential to be remembered for a long time. So, think about what you’re going to say before you say it.
