Watch your words. A broken bone can heal, but the wound a word opens can fester forever. Sometimes, it feels even more painful than the wound we suffer. Forgiveness is not always easy. Although forgiveness is a lotion that soothes and heals the wounds imposed by hostile words and actions, habitual rage of temper should not be tolerated. Marriage does not give us the right to inflict harsh and cruel verbal abuses.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.-Mother Teresa

There is an amazing truth about human tongue, it take three year to learn how use it. But it take a lifetime to learn when and where to use it. I have learned that sometimes some problems can only be solved if we are willing to shut our mouth, learn how to open our ears, heart and head and understand the other personís viewpoint.

Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a manís growth without destroying his roots.-Frank A. Clark

It only take a few seconds to hurt the people we love, but it can take years to heal. So let us take care of our words and actions; take care of our thoughts when we are alone, and take care of our words when we are with people.

A pure mind makes for pure words. It is said that speech may exalt someone to kingship or send him to the gallows. We should never let ourselves indulge in false, bitter and vicious speech. Our words should reflect our true inner nature that of purity and peace. Words once spoken can never be recalled.

 I have also learned not to mix bad words with bad mood. We will have many opportunities to change mood but we will never get the opportunity to replace the words we have spoken. Be sure to taste your word before you spit them out; remember, many have fallen by the edge of the sword but not as many as by tongue.

The more we keep our emotions bottled up, the more they will manifest physically, often in our stomach, or back. When we confide in a trusted friend, there is no need for secrecy. There is relief in speaking our worries out loud. Expressing our concerns in words is an excellent form of therapy.
