Words are timeless.
They are timeless because they are powerful.
With one word you can transport someone’s spirit or annihilate it. You can compel someone to suspend disbelief or enrapture them with your precise detail.
Words should be used as tools… to comfort, to build.
Or you can use them to hit someone over the head with them.
Words should always be accompanied with intent.
Intend for the person receiving the message to understand your heart completely. Select your words carefully. They carry a message from you to someone who is not you.
It is important to mean what you say. I don’t see the point of saying something I cannot get behind. But the words we choose should not be so harsh that the person receiving them cannot get out from under them.
Because words are timeless.
And we should utter them with that knowledge.
