Words are important.

What I wrote above are just three words, but if I sit and think about it, it is as significant as words for me.

A person really needs to think what he is saying before he speaks those words out, before it is too late. You cannot take back those words.

Words are a person’s thoughts, his mind, you can really make a person feel loved by them or you can break a person too.

Words are simply significant.

For me words are my feelings, my heart, my soul, my truth. Whatever language they may be in, it doesn’t matter, words are words, and they are me.

I speak very less in person, I like to listen more. (Because most of the time the other person does not like to listen.). But there is a reason I speak less. I think I have no right judging and forcing my views on others. This does not mean I keep things to myself, I let my feelings out too, but in a more measured and careful way. I can’t just bring myself to destroy the other’s belief, right or wrong. May be I overthink this too, as I overthink everything else, but when someone tells me something, I believe it, when someone is rude with his words, I tend to get hurt, or I think I get over-hurt; when someone says something nice to me, I get over-joyed, all because I love the words they have said. I give so much importance to those words, when in actuality they could do with a little less paparazzi. (Only to avoid getting overjoyed and over-destroyed)

But what can I say, I may be an emotional fool to say that words touch me where people fail to.

Words are significant to me.

They touch my soul.

    1. Absolutely, we have stopped thinking these days, we tend to blurt out our thoughts in consideration that why to burden our minds with thoughts when we can just talk it out, but in doing so we don’t realise that we might hurt someone else.

  1. That is their power…so that you can ‘see’ you…and understand the fear that is blocking your love. They affect you because they cause pain because of your beliefs about yourself.
    Once you understand what holds your fear, you are no longer held by that power, they no longer affect you like they used to because you can now see that you in fact had a false belief about yourself and let it go, and in doing so will then see the fear in what others say. You can see that they are only speaking from ‘their’ place of fear. In fact you have much compassion for them because of that understanding, and when you understand that you are free, no longer ‘on guard’ from anything that is said around you because you now understand that lie that held you fast…and now has no meaning 😀

  2. This post has so much to say, there is like no end to words and a lot more. It’s like a weapon of destruction and a weapon which can save a life. Words are something that can affect us so to the core of our feelings and thoughts that we end up influencing our selves completly of it. I feel diffrent and deep reading this post. Keep writing.
    Just to remind, I recently did the three day quote challenge and nominated you for it. I really look forward of your interpretation of your favorite quotes and swear by the my uploaded post forever. Please do accept it.

  3. Wow! Moushmi, simply beautiful. Yes, I have often noticed that people like to talk rather than listen, and is it not nice to simply listen. You get to know the stories of others too as you already know yours.

    1. Thank you so much dear. I comment got my heart ‘over-joyed’. Use of words you see.
      I agree, sometimes it is good to listen to others stories too, but just sometimes it would be nice to speak your heart out too.
      Thanks again for your words 🙂


      1. Haha…I know…right!! 🙈 Or maybe so many thoughts came up suddenly that it was a bottleneck to write them all! Courtesy your amazing writing skills!! I do write a lot and i accept the fact that brevity and myself dont go along very well! I have to learn the art of saying a lot in few words like you do.
        Ok coming back to this wonderful post….I thought i will read this post at home…aaraam se…but then couldn’t control so went out to a quiet place to read this post of yours and was totally captivated by what i read!! Superbly written with exact emotions as experienced.
        Well i felt like someone had described me perfectly here!! This is ME!! The reason for not speaking much is the same for me. Hence i have inadvertently become a great listener because i have lost hope to find a patient understanding ear. To anyone i come across like a mute person but inside my mind all kinds of thoughts are raging on. And for someone living alone with hardly any interaction with anyone, words impact me a lot. Like you said, i flow with them and believe whatever people say to me (and in the process get duped too …many times). Words hit me directly in mind and heart as if there is no filter in between. Simple words of appreciation and love make me jump up and down in ecstasy and I lose myself…but at the same time an even a slightest hint of rude words down me completely….I get devastated…like a hot knife burning through the chest and piercing the heart. Even if words are right but the tone in which they are said is wrong i can sense it and it hurts (i even did a post on it recently)..and as you said, same for me…words are a representation of what’s really there in my heart and mind, my words represent me, with no lies or hidden thing, they are raw and pure…and i lack the skill to polish and alter them before they come out…so they are me! (like many times you also confirm if i really mean something and i have to assure you that that’s what i really meant!!)…and i assume the same for others as well…their words define them.
        Words can be much more painful than physical injury. And I give them a lot of weight in any conversation…..maybe it’s about being too sensitive a richter scale but that’s how it is. They touch the soul and overwhelm it.
        Great one Moushmi!!

      2. Haha…yes the verbose me!! 🙈 which one you like more then? 🤔
        Well to me it matters if it really touches me or something i can relate to…and then i can go on writing and commenting because then it comes from the heart. So if you see an ‘essay’ from me in comments then it’s a proof that the post was quite weighty and tugged my heartstrings. 🙂

Your perception holds importance for me.
