In my previous article I wrote about arrogance, and I explained how arrogance can be detrimental to one's growth in life, how it can be annoying to other people and ways we can avoid being arrogant.
Today I would be treating a topic that has so much profound effect on our lives and those around us.
Language is a powerful thing. It's the vehicle we use to communicate our thoughts, ideas, and feelings.
Therefore our spoken words carries a lot of essence, and the things we say are often a reflection of the kind of person we are. The way we speak really matters. The words we choose can have an enormous impact on how we view ourselves, the world around us and ultimately, how we live our lives..
When we are interacting with another person, the spoken words are very important. Speaking to our children, parents, friends, and strangers is all done through speaking and the words we use.
That is why it is dangerous to use words that are derogatory or harmful because they can hurt people in ways we cannot realize until after we have said them. We must be careful with our language even when we are with our closest friends or family members
Words can be used to teach, to inspire or to harm and also to heal. What we communicate to others can either uplift them or tear them down.
That is why it is a challenge to find the right words at the right time from the heart.
But by being conscious about the words we choose, it reflect that we have a high level of intelligence and state of mind.
Everywhere on Social media, not excluding the movies and music are filled with everybody using profanities. Also, it is common for people to use these words in everyday conversation. Additionally, these words that used to be taboo are now being used in the mainstream media. However, there is no benefits in using profane words.
Using profane words degrades one and can be harmful to the mind. Most especially that why we get to use the words that people around us use the most.
Just like the popular saying; "show me your friends and I will tell you who you are."
That why we have to surround ourselves with people with like minds and thought, Because everything we listen to has an influence on our mind be it little or big including the medias we read, watch or listen to
Similarly, when speaking at conferences, interviews, job interviews, presentations and all other types of communication, the words that we use is quite important to know. Not only do we need to choose the right words when we speak, but we also need to know how those words are being heard.
We need to drive our communication in a way that it is heard correctly, so we won't be misunderstood. Lack of effective communication has resulted to the break-ups of many friendship, relationship and marriages.
Just as we about to step into Christmas and a new year. We should learn to change those habits that we are not proud of especially using bad languages.
I want to say a big shout to everyone who has supported me so far on this platform. I can't thank you enough. I hope God in heaven will reward you all.
Finally I have left school and I am back home and also my gratitude goes to the Almighty for the safe journey back home
I also want to use this medium to wish everyone a happy Christmas in advance. I am also thanking God for making part of the this forum.
