Words mean things

The words we choose matter and carry weight.

When someone speaks, listen to what they are saying and how they’re saying it. Believe them.

If words didn’t matter…

Yet, in all those cases, someone has chosen the particular words they are using because of what they mean and the words’ effect on someone else. They’re communicating something.

How someone frames an issue that they’re speaking or writing about tells you a lot about what they are thinking, where they’re coming from. Listen to them and believe them.
