Proverbs 15:1 “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
In today’s sensitive world it has become an essential habit to watch what and how we respond to the surroundings. Every relationship is riding through a fragile path. Hence, being very careful on our words to our dear ones is an essential habit to inculcate. This habit not only help to sustain the relationship but to maintain a peaceful atmosphere between you and your loved ones. When you are in a situation in which some provocation compels to react, instantaneous rebuff may not help you to assess the situation and all the more you may not be able to judge the outcome of your spontaneous outburst. This usually may spoil the relationship or worsen the situation by putting you in a predicament from which you may not be even able to come out or rebuild what is lost.
Secondly, our communication at work place or in any social set up is very crucial and being judged a lot. This can not only bring you trouble but can damage your career ladder or social reputation. We must know the boundaries of information to be revealed or discussed to every person around us. Some can help you with that but some can bring real harm to us. Sometimes you tend to give a lot of information, from that they can predict and judge you in an uncomfortable manner. Being watchful on what we say and whom we say will bring a lot of calmness and stability at work place and in social life. By not letting others to cross the limits you set or by not letting anyone know you career plans can actually help to maintain a safe zone at work or social life. Hence being watchful on our words can bring harmony to our life.
As the proverb says “whoever watches his mouth and tongue keeps himself from trouble”.
