One of the fastest ways to get in trouble with someone is to speak negative words. Now, if you'd like to succeed at knowing when and how to speak, this article has sure-fire tips for doing just that! In fact, negative thoughts are praying right now that you never discover or read this article. Because it will get you to think of speaking meaningful words, but here it is:
I didnít always stop to think of the consequences of my words. I believe everyone wants to speak and hear meaningful words yet our thoughts run ahead of us. Our mouths open and the negative words spurt out. Then itís too late! We say stuff like ÖĒ Iím sorry, I didnít mean to say that, or I take that back.Ē Once words are out, you cannot take them back. You can apologize but your damaging words are out and he or she is hurt. The information in this article will help guide anyone to speak words that are important and positive.
Negative words can cause spiritual or physical death to a person. HowÖyou may ask. Hurtful words can damage someone especially if the person is struggling with low self- esteem or from some sort of trauma. Thus, your words may potentially have life threatening results to the person. Harsh words spoken in anger or defense to justify some action may leave a person feeling sad and unworthy. Critical words are detrimental to the soul.
If you speak words that are damaging, you need to ask the person to forgive you. Then, go to God and ask His forgiveness. God is the only one that can provide restoration.
You donít have control over what someone says. However, you have the choice of how you respond and what you say.
Start training your thoughts. Be sure that your words are supportive (edifying) to teach the individual. Aim for conversations that leave other in a better state of mind.
The great thing is that when you speak to edify you improve your relationships and others feel that you care. Be careful not to speak positive words if they are not from a true heart. People can discern if youíre not being genuine, so itís better to remain silent. Avoid causing damage to an individual and yourself with negative thoughts and words, because God holds us accountable for them.
Do you feel like negative thoughts are conspiring against you? Look no further because below are three TOP tips to help you super-charge your thoughts and words. This is vital information negative thoughts pray you never discover because then their secrets are out of the bag. Cruel thoughts donít want you to speak words that are orderly, respectful, directly related, and supportive.
Below are three important tips I learned in life, and was reminded of them by my pastor. I have paraphrased them to my understanding.
1. Is what Iím thinking to say truth?
2. If it is truth, is it necessary to say it now?
3. Is it edifying the individual?
What is the source of your information? If itís truth, you donít have to speak it just because you have the knowledge. How does what youíre about to say relate to the matter at hand? Is what youíre about to say from your imagination? Is it story vs. truth? Will you be adding more flames to a burning fire? If itís truth and worth saying, then speak respectively and teach without tearing the person down. These points are important to both you and the other individual.
The above is what your negative thoughts hope you don't know or that you will forget. This is because they want to come out and cause harm in words or actions. These unhealthy thoughts work against you and the other individual.
From my experiences as with anything, the tips shared in this writing will help you change over time. I hope that it put some real power in your corner. I know everyone is capable of doing better in conversations, including me!
Don't forget, there is a lot more to spoken words and success in your day-to-day relationships. So, don't let this article be the end of your journey but rather the beginning of your quest for better relationships and more knowledge.
Don't sit on this new knowledge and forget about it. Put it to good use and better your communication with others. This is really, what you desire, right? Of course!
