Words are powerful. They can help and they can hurt. What we say to others – and to ourselves – can have a huge impact. Speaking with good purpose is about always considering the intention of our words. If we think before we speak instead of blurting out whatever comes to mind, we can learn to consider the reason for our words and make sure we are speaking with good purpose. We do not have to say everything we think!
