T.H.I.N.K. Before You Speak

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Woman CryingThey say the pen is mightier than the sword. Our words are very powerful and I wanted to put out the reminder to

            T.H.I.N.K. Before You Speak

This goes of course for writing or for clicking SEND with email or a text as well. I don't want to say you can't forcefully voice your opinion, disagree with folks, or show tough love with words, but DO it in a manner of kindness. We should not treat people like children even the most sensitive among us walking around on egg shells with them but just come to them with honesty and a good heart and you will be fine.

Did you know FREELY SPEAKING is the heart of intimacy? But do it by T.H.I.N.K. ing first though. That acronym:

Is it?

T   -   TRUE

H   -   HELPFUL

I   -   INSPIRING

N   -   NECESSARY

K   -   KIND

Thanks, Gary ... I like how you spelled THINK out and used very good descriptive words after each letter.  I ensured that my "turret" syndrome did not kick in... J/K. *(*(*&$^^%$#!!

Good advice for all of us.  Some of us also need to work on our listening skills.

Have an outstanding week and be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments.

The K IS THE KEY for the sensitive. Just remember KIND AND BRUTAL are like oil and water regardless if you are sensitive or not

Yeah, I agree Gary. You've pointed out great advice for us all. "Think before you speak" it is very important, as you've said, words are very powerful.

I must admit, sometimes I do NOT think before I speak and it is usually when I am in the throws of an argument (yup, rarely happens though) LOL!
