Oh the power of words…. Something that is almost always on my mind. Most are familiar with reading music, when you have a series of notes it can make beautiful music or let a little kid at it and it can become painful to the ears. That is kind of how are words are, you’ve been given a series of words and you can choose to put them in an order in which they sound beautiful and bring life, or you can put them in an order which is ugly and dead.
Both of the videos above show just how powerful words can be how they shape things and bring life or death. I’ve watched it work in my own life. I’ve seen the difference between two people living almost the same lifestyle but one being way happier while the other was depressed. The biggest difference? The music they were listening too. If you find the right song at the right time and it will drag you down so much you wont know what to do with yourself. But if you find the right one it will lift you higher and you’ll feel better.
I’ve seen it work first hand and words are not something that should just be thoughtlessly used. They should be handled with much care. That’s part of why we have such a problem with bullying, it wouldn’t be so bad if words had no effect on us, but they have a huge impact which is partly why we have kids who are committing suicide. I knew a girl who was fine with the way she looked, she wasn’t much bigger than I was and I’m referred to as a twig, until she came across the wrong person at school and they told her she was fat. She started to get depressed because of what a single person told her. If that one person told her that she was beautiful she could’ve saved my friend from a lot of trouble.
Speak your words and choose what you listen to wisely. Your words have the power to give life and death, to heal, wound, fix, break, damage, and mend.
