The Meaning Of Words


I recently learned a lesson - I have probably learned this lesson several times in my life - but this time it really made me think.... more.

The meaning behind my words - may not be understood by people who don't really know me... If I write something like "It's All about me" - someone might perceive it to mean - that I am shallow. When in reality - those that know me - would perceive it as my sarcastic nature - and that something might be going on in my life that is very big... something that I am having a hard time handling.....

My sister, Tammy once said to me that she hates discussing important things via email... via letters... When there is something important to be said the best thing is to have a face to face.... Or if you can't do a face to face - then talk on the phone... Talk it out ... yell it out.... discuss it out... There is a lot to be said about the inflictions in the voice.. the huskiness of regret... or the sweetness of a gentle laugh.... Talking face to face or on the phone - can make you more vulnerable than you want to be... But sometimes we have to be vulnerable... sometimes - we have to listen to the wrongs and rights we have committed...

My goal is to be transparent - I want my words and my actions to reflect the woman that God wants me to be.... The woman I want to be.... If my words appear to be selfish - self - centered, obnoxious, hateful, or rude - Please believe that is not my intention... That is not what I want to be.... However..... if you cut me off in traffic - all bets all bets are off.. Just Kidding......

Well said...You are entitled to say what you want to say...whether the readers will agree or not...But it's hard to find those kind of people now, willing to be honest...And your desire to be transparent is awesome! Praying for your sister and her family. Thank you for yours sister. My son is doing much better now. Just trying to recover his strength. God bless.

Tansparency is important for any meaningful conversation. And, at times, we may come across the wrong way. I have that happen to me. All we can do is try to explain what we meant and go on. Good job.
