Words affect our hearts.

 

Be sure that you’re spreading the same love and kindness that you wish to receive when you speak.

 Whether you’re talking to a friend, a family member or a foe; ask yourself these 5 questions before:

  1. AM I BEING HONEST?

It’s easy to get caught up in gossip, and repeating something you heard as if it’s factual. Unless it’s something that you’ve heard with your very own ears; don’t repeat idle whispers.

  2. IS WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SAY NECESSARY?

There’s a vast difference between being informed and being opinionated. It’s very easy to become heated, especially during testing times, but don’t allow your ego to speak on your behalf. And while we all develop opinions, don’t allow for them to speak for you.

  3. IS THERE A KINDER WAY TO SAY THIS?

Sometimes words evade us, and it’s difficult to find the right words, but try to take a moment to find them. Let’s face it; we’ve all had that instant moment of complete and utter regret when words have flown from our mouth and we’re wishing we can claw them back.

  4. IS IT APPROPRIATE FOR THIS MOMENT?

I’ve been a victim of speaking at completely the wrong time, and it’s humiliating. Your words may be truthful and they may be necessary, but that doesn’t mean that the time is right for them. Is there a better time perhaps for your words? If so, wait and eliminate the chance of regretting your timing.

  5. WOULD SILENCE BE A BETTER CHOICE?

Something can still be true and yet completely unnecessary. Sometimes silence really is the better option, and the most loving and considerate thing for the person you’re talking to is to sit and be there without using your words. Learn to listen without judgement or opinion. It’s very easy, especially with loved ones, to want to make them feel better when they’re hurting. But just remember what you say will stick around long after they feel better. Learn to just be present; they’ll appreciate it in the long run.
