Thoughtful Thursdays: It's Not What You Say. It's How You Say It?

Period.  Comma.  Exclamation Mark.  Questions.  What you say and how you say it, will influence every relationship and conversation you have in your life.  Have you ever said something and the other person took it the wrong way?

Perhaps, it was the tone in your voice or your body language.  Were you too loud?  Were you rolling your eyes?  Were you making some weird hand expressions?  In every situation, you should consider very carefully how you interact to the people around you.  Whether it is your family, spouse, co-worker, boyfriend/girlfriend, your words and how you speak them will impact your relationships in the way that YOU CHOOSE to impact them.  If you expect a certain reaction or to be treating respectfully, choose your words and how you say them very carefully.
