The Power Of Words

Only speak when what you have to say can improve the silence, if not, then the sound of silence is not that bad.

The mindless chattering, the useless gossiping are all a part of today’s world. People have fun discussing the lives of others or  about the materialistic objects available to us in abundance. The times when people used to share ideas, when people used to talk about having a better tomorrow  or having a peaceful today is gone.

People use words like toys. They play around with them, without realising that if used in the wrong way, it may hurt anyone, or at times even themselves. The ability to think before you speak has become another quality which only our ancestors possessed, like huge ears. The extinction of their attribute has actually become an consequence of evolution. Ironically, with the amount of time people spend talking nowadays, we are in desperate need of those huge ears to grasp all the matters of the world.

Phrases like ‘I love you’ ‘Slut’ ‘Bitch’ ‘I hate you’ ‘ I never want to see you again’ are thrown around in the air, like throwing food at people in a food fight. It’s value is not understood until after it has left your mouth. The emotions behind these words have lost their meaning. Few words can crush your soul and few can give you hope for life again. But who to believe? Who has the will power to trust everything that anyone says to them?

When in a relationship, people profess their feelings of love within two days of their acquaintance. Based on small spats, they end up saying things they don’t mean. Not being able to say the right thing at the right time can lead to years of misery and pain and at times the loss at a chance at living a life of  true happiness      

Selfishness has become second nature to everyone nowadays,. Doing something for anyone without having anything in it for you is next to impossible.. There is no place for simplicity anymore. No place for naive people . People twist their words to get into jobs, to make excuses and what not. Being true to yourself and the people around you isn’t appreciated anymore. 

Diplomacy is what is ruling the world and is what will continue to rule the world. I don’t know what has happened to that place where everyone used to stay in peace with each other? Was that Eutopia? Is this my innocence that I ever thought such a place existed.

Use your words to make an impact, use your words to profess your true feelings, use your words for what you believe in..

Don’t lets this beautiful ability that we have of speaking, be eroded with this thing, which otherwise is definitely something of great importance,  called evolution. I know change is the only constant, but language is something that is eternal. The words that you use define you and your personality. Set an example for the coming generations so that when they look back to this era, they realise what a beautiful place they live in and how lucky they are….

  1. The words we choose definitely can make a conversation go well or very badly. Your post made me think of something I saw the other day when a patient was very worried about his back pain (I would be too!) and the physical therapist basically had to talk him off a ledge bc he was so worried he’d have to get spinal surgery and never be able to do some of his favorite hobbies – and he was so worried bc his previous doctor had told him he had a herniated disk. Turns out herniated disks are very common, but sounds so bad when you don’t know what they are! The previous doctor could’ve saved the guy a lot of stress if he had just explained. Did not expect to leave such a long comment! lol but your thoughtful post made me think :))
