Words Fade Away
We all have met people who talk it up when a certain topic arises; actually, when a lot of topics arise. These people will proudly put themselves on a pedestal and make it known to the world how great they are at a certain activity, or how familiar they are with a certain topic. But their words easily fade away because it’s actions that always speak volumes.
When you encounter these types of people, rather than becoming irritated and confronting them, allow them to voice their opinion while you lay low and casually observe. By doing this, you are actually going to find it quite soothing that you are not like them! This process allows you to appreciate how your character does not fall down to theirs.
Always remember that your words are no comparison to your actions. You may wonder, “Why? I always seem to say the right thing and get away with it! What’s wrong with that?” But it’s not about saying the right thing and pleasing others in return. People who rely on their words with little actions to back them up are usually insecure and untrustworthy.
And if you demonstrate actions that back up your words, but your words are nasty and hurtful, then they’re equal to nothing. What good does it do to this world to express hurtful and judgmental actions and words? God gave us a brain for thinking, a tongue for talking and a heart for loving!
You should always be putting a healthy emphasis on all of your words and actions. Even one single harsh word towards another person may be enough to cause them to kill themselves. Even one harmful action towards another person may be enough to cause them to go on a shooting spree.
Your actions speak volumes and the people around you notice them. It’s your responsibility to demonstrate proper and respectable behavior. Your behavior influences others, even if it’s not on a conscious level. Every person influences another person. And if we learn to demonstrate proper actions on a consistent basis, then this world will become a better place.
It’s time for you to take your actions more seriously.
