The words matter


The words matter

Every time we have the floor we have the chance to create connection (or to sever it). We can open up possibility or we can close it.

Sometimes, we share our answer thinking it might be the answer, when it might have been better to ask a generous question instead.

Being funny by being cutting isn’t funny, that’s just an excuse.

It’s hard to take words back, and we use so many of them, it’s likely that there are some we’d prefer to retrieve. Note to self: better to slow down a little instead.
