WordMatters

Or rather, words matter.  Sometimes, but not always.  

Words CAN matter.  They can matter quite a lot.  

We are constantly bombarded by words - in text, in person, in audio, and through video.  Words, words, words.  How do we know which ones to heed and which ones to disregard?

Typically, one of two conditions predicate a degree of mattering to words:

  1.  When we are able to assign some degree of credibility, honesty, and integrity to the producer of the words.  In effect, we have some respect for the wordsmith.  
  2.  We have a meaningful relationship with the producer of the words.
With that in mind a few questions follow:

What words are we saying/writing?
Who might be listening?
Do our words matter?
