Nothing is more valuable and more powerful than words. A simple word can change our life, give us strength to fight or condemn to death, we are headed for the right way or turned back to the place we started. Words can shatter our dreams just like they make us believe in them. Words are immortal, eternal, but nevertheless they’re sometimes the false reflection of our spiritual feelings and emotions.
What’s in a word? A world, a life, a purpose, a desire, an idea, an illumination or just a simple mixture of letters? We create bridges of words, but rarely rely on their resistance, just because there is one thing that those who utter them don’t think of: ’’ words can hurt!’’. People today are too busy and too preoccupied with themselves and they often forget that there is someone besides them. Therefore, unfortunately it is dangerous to be near to such a person, because it can tell you exactly what’s on its mind right in face, without to think or to weigh any word. However, sometimes we say unthinkable words and we’re not attentive of what the person we lead a conversation with may feel. It may be a friend or a colleague, a neighbour or a simple passerby, but often also family members. They might misunderstand us or judge and then it’s harder to erase a word from one’s head than from a sheet. But here comes the proverb: “What you write with a pen, you can’t cut with a hatchet”.
Anyway, what we say is in some measure a part of someone’s heart, those are words of love, appreciation, support and trust. We mustn’t allow someone to flood our soul with bad words and also not to do the same thing with someone else’s soul. Keep the hurt words to yourself, because nobody needs sadness in life, we all deserve to smile and in this case words should be taken in doses and only on a medical prescription.
