Power of Words and how we say it

I once attended a church service and the minister was talking about tone or how we deliver our lines. It matters what tone we use when speaking with people. It helps build character or it can easily put down someone, to cheer up or push one to the edge. Our words can give strength to those who might really need them at that very moment that we would not have noticed it. “Speak words that make people stronger.” At times, one rude comment or wrong intonation could shatter one’s feelings and shut them out from the world. The other person might take it differently than what we are trying to imply. So at times it is best to be wary of our tones. We can choose to affirm instead of deny or undermine the capabilities of a person.

Then there’s Jason Mraz’ song The Beautiful Mess, and we’re reminded that no matter how all things played, at some point we’d say Here we are, even when we are wounded with words slices like blades,

“And through timeless words and priceless pictures
We’ll fly like birds not of this earth
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure
But that’s no concern when we’re wounded together
And we tore our dresses and stained our shirts
But it’s nice today, oh, the wait was so worth it”

Here we are…
