It wasn't till relatively recently that I properly noticed the Power of Words over us. I always knew it, but knowing and realizing are twin brothers. Similar yet different.
Here is an example. Smooth talking can lead to someone falling for you...and they ultimately get their heart broken, because you did not pick up on the signs. All because you were being too nice when you didn't really feel it in the way they did. It works both ways.... I have doled it out and I have been a recipient. It is painful on both counts. I want to write more on this but have not the time right now.
