Think Before You Speak


Ask yourself: Could somebody's feelings be hurt, or their self-esteem damaged, if I make this comment or observation?We are so eager to talk that we often forget to ask ourselves: who will benefit from what I am going to say? Could somebody's feelings be hurt, or their self-esteem damaged, if I make this comment or observation?

THINK before you speak...is it Truthful; Helpful: Inspiring: Necessary and Kind?

Ask yourself these questions and you may save others pain through needlessly hurtful words.
