Words Are More Powerful Then They Seem


I can something jokingly, or just kind of like not thinking about the real meaning or how it comes across, you know? And then I realize later--"Oh my gosh, that was mean/rude/selfish/etc." Sometimes I don't realize how much power my words have. How much people actually listen to me and actually do what I say and stuff. I don't realize just what I'm doing when I let the words slip out of my mouth.

Words are more powerful then they seem.

We might think that we're just joking or something, but what if the person that we're talking to doesn't pick up on the "joking element"? What if all they hear are our words--the ones that we said "jokingly" and then that person thinks they're true. What if you went through your whole life and found out that a friend of yours thought that you thought something that was just "jokingly" said about them or someone else. I mean, how horrible would that be?

Words are more powerful then they seem.

When we say something, we don't know how deep it actually goes. We don't realize that people could be repeating those words over and over in their brains--not because they love them, but because they've struck them in a horrible way. Stung them. Hurt them. If we don't realize the power we have on our words, we could end up hurting people that we love the most.

Words are more powerful then they seem.

Harness your words. Pray to God for help. It might not seem to make sense at the moment, but it might just save you heartbreak.

I'm sorry if my words have ever hurt you. If they have, I am so very sorry.

  1. That is so so true. I am rather frank, and when I was little I often hurt my friend's feelings, and was completely lost as to why it would bother her. I have definitely learned to be careful with what I say, though I still make stupid mistakes.
    No, your words have always been an encouragement to me. You are beautiful on the inside :)

    1. I was always shy, so it's like when I finally come out of my shell, I've hurt people... people I love. :/ It's so sad.

      Thank you so much. <3

  3. Omigosh. I totally get where you're coming from. I've done this before and felt so bad that I couldn't sleep at night. I never mean to do it, I don't think anyone does, but it just happens. We've always been told as kids, 'think before you say it aloud' and no one listens to the people that told us that, when we really need to. I think this post was ever so lovely and pleasant to read. Thanks for writing it! :) I learned a lot from it. :)
