Have you ever needed a do over on the time you spoke too fast? What happens to the slow down button of the mind when the emotions are in play?
I can admit there were a few too many times I went chasing behind my words, but to my dismay I couldn’t catch them.
Have you ever responded abrasive, judgmental, spontaneous, emotional, with revenge, guilt, or the wrong intent? Asking yourself, now how did that response come out so quickly? Can I get a do over, please!
From our thoughts to the outside world in a matter of moments: that is all it takes to build up/tear down a person’s self-esteem, say yes to a situation when you really wanted to say no, or to ignore/respond to a hostile situation.
Have you ever spoken without thought concerning your relationship, family, friendships, your future, your finances, your career, and even your current mood?
Am I the only one guilty of listening just to respond at times? Hey, let’s be honest…
Remember the saying, sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. It sounds good as a nursery rhyme, but it’s far from true. Words can hurt and they can stay with you.
Unfortunately No do overs, but we can strive to do better.
- My momma have been telling me this for years, Think before you speak!
- Everything doesn’t justify a response.
- It’s ok to say No!
- Don’t let your emotions dictate your conversations.
- You don’t have to always be right.
- Don’t listen to have a rebuttal.
- The Bible says, Be swift to hear and slow to speak.
Be kind, Be Bold and Be a Woman on the Move.
