Mind Your Words.
I learned to use words with sensitivity. Ancient scripture says, “The tongue has the power of life and death…” namely, what I say, has long term effects which I can never take back. The result is, I never engage my tongue without my sensitivity being in gear.
I never use large complicated expressions or popular jargon when speaking to others. If the purpose of speaking is to communicate my thoughts to my listeners, what’s the use of using these if they don’t understand?
Above all my discovery has been this; when I say something encouraging to someone else, they almost never react badly. It seems encouraging words are most times soothing.
