Power of Words--100 Words
The power of words. Been thinking about that lately. How others use words. How I use them.
“I hate you.”
“I love you.”
“You can’t be on my team.”
Just words—that could be said. Simple words at that. Only one of those words even has more than one syllable. Simple words.
Yet, powerful. Some are kind. Others gentle. Some hurtful. Others gut-wrenching.
How well do you guard your words? Do you think before speaking? Or, say the first thing that comes to mind?
Shakespeare said, “When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain.”
