It has been long since I have written something. And this prompt has given me a perfect reason to start something fresh. Thanks to my blogger friends Upasna and Rohan for giving an opportunity to write about something that’s close to my heart.
We often take our loved ones for granted. This is the reason that we become carefree while talking to them. But at times of arguments, we tend to speak badly to them. In anger, our brain stops thinking and we don’t realise what we speak. Later, we feel guilty. We should always be careful while choosing our words because….
Words describe you
A character is made out of our verbal behaviour. We are often tagged as soft-spoken, arrogant, high-pitched etc. according to our way of talking. Words once spoken can’t be taken back. Instead of regretting later, it is better to think before we speak.
This one is complicated. Actually, when we are angrier with somebody, we become so negative with that person. And this results in saying bad words in the heat of the moment. Although, we don’t mean such words but as said earlier, once we have spoken it can’t be corrected.
Effect on the listener
The listener is sure to be hurt. It is not easy to move on with such behaviour and mostly it’s not easy for the listener to forgive also. It takes the time to heal. Still, our loved ones try to forgive which now hurts us the most. It makes us feel so guilty that we wish to switch to a reverse mode and correct the faults.
- We all have opinions for everyone; good or bad. It is wise to say the good things first followed by the suggestions to rectify their bad habits.
- When you are angry, it is advisable to not to instantly react to the situation. I know it is not easy but anger is one such emotion that is only destructive and nothing else. This only spoils relationships. Practice to be patient and convey your message a little later when things are calmer. This way the listener is more likely to follow your suggestion.
- Always treat others as you would want to be treated by them. If this golden rule is followed, our life would be much simpler.
