Will my words make the world a more loving place?

Thich Nhat Hanh offers this awesome statement about using loving words -

Aware that words can create suffering or happiness, I am committed to speaking truthfully and constructively, using only words that inspire hope and confidence
— Thich Nhat Hanh

Ask yourself some pointed questions before speaking:

  • Are my thoughts kind?

  • Will these words build the other person up or discourage them?

  • Will my words make the world a more loving place?

  • If the answer to any of these questions is no, then silence is a better option.

  • Words have the power of life and death. Choose life. Choose love. Choose encouragement.
