The Power of Your Words

Our words have power, whether we believe it or not. No, our words my not leave a visible bullet wound or a gash from a blade, but the wounds it leaves are deep and hidden and some may never recover from them.

I wonder…if we could see the wound appear on the face of the person we are speaking to, would we stop. If we could see the skin flare red as if we’ve just slapped them, would that be enough to stop us? I bet we would.

What if it’s my own words inflicting the wounds? If I could see the damage I was leaving each time I criticize myself or say horrible things (things I would never say to anyone else) would I stop?

Well Dr. Masaru Emoto has found a way to show us just how powerful our words are. Next time you find yourself speaking negatively just remember how much prettier kind words are!
