Speaking exists long before writing. Actually, speaking is the second oldest thing in the world after thinking. So mankind has been thinking from a long time. Thoughts were there long before the speech was discovered and for a very long time man had been thinking with a complete silence until the speech came. Speaking is the means of expressing our ideas, thoughts. It is the most used type of communication. Sometimes it may also lead to disasters and destructions, since there’s a saying: “Words cut more than swords” , which is a very good saying because sometimes one can hurt another so much using words. A person can even murder other one with the help of words. He murders his feelings, emotions and hurts his self esteem. Here, the murder weapon is a ‘word’. Because swords can be used in destruction, but words can perform the work of both; it can cause destruction as well as can heal the deepest wounds of someone. So it is very important how we use the words. If we hurt someone with a sword, the pain is physical and it diminishes in a long run but if we hurt a person with words, the pain is always intact there. An arrow cannot come back once it has left. Likewise, we cannot take the words back what we have spoken. We give so much troubles to ourselves with our existing knowledge and informational background which is not enough to solve these problems and eliminate the troubles we’ve got ourselves in. Most of the times, we cause all these troubles with our own tongue and words.So, we should always try to have a control over our tongue and think twice before we speak. The words uttered may lead to failure and success. We should always try to speak something good which doesn’t hurt someone’s feelings. Like I said before, physical wounds can be healed, but there are very few chances of the wounds to be cured, caused internally. Why to utter bad? What we will get by saying bad?, the answer is, ‘Nothing!’. But if we say something good and positive, we’ll gain a lot of things like love, faith, belief and respect from that person. It is easy to spurt out something without really thinking about it. Usually, this ends up with okay with no harm done, but sometimes you’ll say something you wish you hadn’t. Problem is you can’t take those words back. If you utter something wrong, there is a strong chance that people will always remember that what came out of your mouth. So before you speak, make sure that you mean what you say. Stand by what you do say, and follow through. Don’t criticize but try to be positive. Next time before you blurt out a critique, say something nice instead. You’ll be respected for it.
