The Power of Words

Image Source:
Words are powerful tools! They can build or destroy our worlds – they can create mayhem, harmony, heal, or even destroy. Words come in two forms; as positive or negative and as such, each individual have the responsibility to use words carefully.
“Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble."
- Yehuda Berg
Using Words to Create Other People’s Worlds
Before words come into existence, they first occur as mere thoughts in an individual’s mind which are then translated into words. The words are then followed by actions, either from the speaker or the hearer of the words .It is of uttermost importance to know that spoken words have impact on the listener and as such, before one speaks, they should first take time to contemplate what they are about to say and the manner in which they are going to say it. For instance, a person may easily take an advice from someone who gives it in a kind, gentle and encouraging manner than from someone who criticises using destructive and hurtful words even if the advice was of value. This is because the listener might find the advice objectionable in its judgmental undertones.
