Good thing words cannot kill, or else, I will be six feet below the ground...

A pleasant day Fellow Mylotters, I can't really imagine why some people speak tactlessly. That they don't even care what word they are saying and delivering to their fellow. I could just imagine, how many times my brother always shouts and screams on me. Most of the time, he yells even in a light and simple situation. Good thing that words coming from his mouth doesn't take life or kill me, hence, I will be six feet below the ground if his words can exterminate life.

A lot of people truly are tactless. Most often than not, the words that hurt me the most come from my family - kind of makes you wonder just how the culture of Filipino families is, huh? My dad yells and screams at me and my sisters all the time, and that's something he considers normal. As a matter of fact, if his words reduce me and my sister to tears, he has no qualms in calling us weaklings. I guess he just has no idea of the concept of tact...

hello aira, There are certain people who speaks carelessly. They don't care what would you feel as long as they can express what they want to say. It's a character that is hard to break. These people are irate, and never have peace within. Just ignore it, there is nothing you can do if the person itself doesn't want to change.

Hi aira, I've been with that kind of situation before and if you are not used to those kind of people, that would surely hurt your feelings and might take you in a very bad mood. I fully understand how you feel, some people are just careless and are not choosing the right word to use. They would say what they want and how they want to say it. And I think that it is rude. We should always be considerate and respectful to every person that we encounter. There's this saying that words are like swords that can kill. Although its meaning is not literal, I find this saying so true. Word is powerful. Sometimes, even a single word can hurt us so much. We should always be careful of what we should say because one we have said it, we can no longer take it back.
