Your words matter. They are one of the most important aspects of your life. They are an important characteristic of your life because they reveal who you are. Unlike any other thing in your life your words come from the depths of your essence. You will speak what is on the inside of yourself. This is a fact you cannot hide. You will speak from who you are. This is why your words really do matter.What is on the inside of you? Is there life? Or is there death? Listen to your words, and you will know. Do you believe in yourself? Or do you doubt yourself? The world will know through the words you speak. You can try to deceive, but eventually, your words will reveal the truth about you. There is no way around this reality.I grew up hearing a story about a woman, which illustrates this truth. One day, the woman and her brother-in-law began arguing. During the argument, the woman said, "I wish you were dead." At work the next day, the brother-in-law had an accident while driving a company truck. The truck would not stop, and he jumped from the truck. After jumping, the truck trailer rolled over on him and killed him. For some time after, the woman was haunted by her words.
