Do you believe in a power of word?

Words are powerful, but language is interpretive. What we don't say can be just as important as what we do say, more so sometimes. Our tone,pitch and general style of speaking or writing can be misinterpreted easily, and something that seems so innocent could cause a fuss. Like you said, words are powerful, and can cause just as much hurt as they can comfort.

Yes,i agree with you.It is easily to make someone angry if we say serious word,the one even will fight with us,but if we say a nice word to praise him or comfort him,he will always accept with exciting.Anybody whose word is like the mirror,let us know the impression or judgement to us,it's very important. :)

hi friend as2006.it is right,word is powerful tool to make thing go to be bad or good.so in some condition,we should say our words cautiously.Because we are responsible for our words.Never say the bad words on some body's back.Because it will hurt a person a lotbut please say a courageous word to a sick person, it will support him a lot. Lolo,so word is so powerful indeed sometimes

Yes, i believe in it's power. The words are sharper than swords, that's what they say, and sometimes, you will notice that yourself. Let's take for example a "no" said to you when you share your sentiments to someone that you love and she refuses. That can be more painfully than a scratch with a knife.

Yeah, the word will influence a person’s mind set. So I also believe in the power of the word. If someone just picks up the negative words all the time, his / her mind will be loaded with those negative thinking all the time, and just imagine the result. Garbage in garbage out. The mouth will speak what comes from the heart and mind. If the mind is always full with negative words / thinking, that would be the words the person speaks out and digest in the deepest part of his / her unconsciousness. I can imagine this bad effect and I think the good words would have the similar effect but in positive parts.

I absolutely believe that God's word is power. Christ is the Word. Thru him the heavens and the earth have been created and everything therein but talking about human words, humans may create influence with the words they say, it can make or break but humans' words don't have power to make things happen by just speaking, only God can do that. Sadly, man can also utter nonsense.

Yes i do believe in power of giving word. The person who taken a word from another person will be trusting him more than the one who has given word. The who is taking is at risk as the other one may or may not keep his word. Problem would be for the person who has taken word. Happy Mylotting!

I agree what you say or write can have a huge impat on yours or others lives, for example when I am upset with my child and how they are behaving I will not say 'I don't like you right now', I will say 'I don't like how you are behaving right now' as this sort of thing repeatedly said in the wrong way can make the child eventually feel unliked so therefore unloved. It is so important to think before calling someone silly or stupid because if they hear it often enough they will believe it but in the reverse postive praise can works wonders which is also what I try to implement into conversations, eg 'Oh darling that is so wonderful and you are so clever to be able to do that' Ellie :D

It is better to use the power of word rather than the power of might or weapons to solve things in our life. There is a saying that says the word is mightier than the sword and there is a lot of truth in that statement. The way we say what we say, the words that we choose and the tone that we use would carry different messages across to the person that we are communicating with and that would definitely affect the person either negatively or positively... This is really an interesting subject on communication and thanks for bringing it up!

I believe the power of word. Actually I didn't believe I would be influenced by other's words but recently I found I was wrong.I can be influenced by words. When people communicating word choosing is important. When people talk about one same thing,different words including possitive and negative,give people different feeling.Therefor communicating needs skill on choosing words.
