Our voice impacts everyone around us. We can use our voice to hurt others or to uplift them. We can raise our voice in anger or soften our voice with love and compassion. We choose what voice to project out to the world.
Our words and our voice can totally change someone’s day, perspective, and life.
So I try to be loving and kind with my words. Of course, I don’t always achieve that 100% of the time, but I do so more and more often, and that’s what is important. We are all a work in progress, struggling with various difficulties on our own path. And I strive to keep my words honest, loving, and kind. And I trust that is reflective of the true me.
It is also important to be aware of the voice we use in talking to ourselves. Do we beat ourselves up? Or are we loving and kind to ourselves? I have a tendency to be too harsh, judgmental, and critical of myself. I am learning to love myself more and to speak to myself with compassion and gentleness.
After all, we are all here just muddling through life, trying to do the best we can at each moment, where we are, and with what we have.
Always speak with love and kindness to yourself – because you are listening.
