I know that love is shown in deeds, not merely words but sometimes what is expressed in words does mean a lot. You may say that you don’t mean it or you were saying it when you were angry or you were just saying it for fun but these words stays. It stays with the person who heard or read it, whether the words were meant for them or for someone else. Directly or indirectly. It stays in the heart. Words go through the ears to the brain and dwell at the heart. You may say that you shouldn’t keep anything in the heart but it is there and it is not easy to put aside. Similarly, if something nice is being said – it stays with you and you would always remember it.
Words that you uttered also can be a manifestation of what kind of person you are. Whether you are a weak person, a wise person, an angry person or whatever other kind there are. If you are in a relationship yet you are talking with another person in a flirty way – what does that shows of you? Or if you are flirting with your friend’s partner – what characteristic of a person are you demonstrating? Don’t turn around now and says that it meant nothing. When you process the thoughts in your head and then express it with your words – it surely mean something.
And all this matters. Because your words matter.
