Louder Than Words

The old phrase “actions speak louder than words” has a lot of merit, but it’s only half the story. Words, when spoken with love and honesty, complete the picture. Though how many times have you had the experience of someone showering you with words of love and support, giving you expectations of a future scenario, only to fall short on promises? I know I have – in both personal and work-related situations – and being the human that I am I’m certain that I’ve been the offender now and then. While I’m by no means trying to let myself off the hook, it’s the manner in which things fall through, the consistency of unfulfilled promises, and the level of importance of said situation to another’s life that counts.

We all have times when we wish we could have followed through a bit better, but when you find that it’s a consistent trait, then trust becomes a big issue. How can you trust someone’s words if they don’t hold any weight by their actions? On the other hand, what about those who act in a loving and supportive way, but can never find the words to express their feelings? While yes, I would definitely choose the relationship with the show of support over empty words, isn’t it better to both show and verbally express your love? To look deep into someone’s eyes and express feelings of true love while accompanied by the actions to support it is the greatest gift anyone can give or receive. It’s what meaningful relationships are built on.

With Love.

From Over There:
“First comes thought, and then come words, followed by action. This process is necessary in building strong, long-lasting relationships. When there is thought and words without action it creates feeling of betrayal, as the lack of follow-through renders the words meaningless. When there is action without thought, then disregard of another’s well-being and the well-being of the initiator has the potential to create much disharmony in the relationship. The lack of thought demonstrates disrespect for the self and others.

Words following initial thought may be spoken, written or internalized. Words spoken toward another – when done from the heart – have a profound effect on the energy of both the orator and the receiver. This, accompanied by actions related to the words, creates an energetic link. When words are void of love, or are not followed by related action, it weakens the energetic link between individuals. This weakening lessens the feelings of consideration each has for one another. Relationships founded in love, trust and respect will always include the components of thought, word and action.”
