Words have a profound effect on our lives – they shape our relationships, they can pick battles, or they can resolve difficult situations. Are you someone who chooses wisely or fires at will? Does anyone get caught in the crossfire? Do your words cause more problems or more solutions? Does pride control the content or humility? Humans are so variable – the same words, said in the same manner can be perceived in a different way depending on the day or receiver. Remember, perception is reality (always with that phrase…). If that weren’t enough to contemplate for the day, they not only have an effect on the people we interact with, but they shape OUR attitudes and choices as well. Encouraging, discouraging, vulgar, motivating, soft, sharp, unnecessary – so many choices, so many tones, so much effect. Choose wisely…
