Being Sympathetic of Others Feelings

Updated on September 19, 2013

Don't upset or hurt further.

Many of us at one time or another has said or done something that maybe was not appropriate at the time it occurred. These are those times when we want to stick our feet in our mouth's to stop ourselves from spewing out anything else that may be considered offensive.

Sometimes Taken out of Context

Most times when these situations occur we are not saying things to intentionally offend anyone but sometimes things may be taken out of context. We must then try and straighten out the mess or hurt our words have caused however unintentional. Words can be a very dangerous tool and have been used throughout time to pierce the hearts of many unsuspecting victims. Maybe we need to slow down and think before we speak or act. The saying "actions speak louder than words" is true but they can also cause irrepairable damage.

Not All Wrong Actions Can be Repaired

We just have to look at all the wars we have fought from one century to the next. The actions during these times caused the deaths of many. Replacing those lives that where lost during times of war is something we are unable to do. We have to remember that not all actions are good and not all wrongs can be repaired after these wrong actions are taken!

Words As Weapons

At least if we are using words as our weapons there will be a better chance we can take back what we have said and hopefully forgiven. When we discuss issues or debate them hopefully we can come to an agreement that all involved are content with. I feel this is a much better approach compared to the take action and ask questions later way of handling things. Using words to express ourselves instead of weapons of destruction is a much better option; rather than have everything and everyone covered in the blood of those who lost their lives in physical battle where lives are lost.

Casting A Bad Light - Not Right!

This past weekend I was literally shocked to see a film called "Pearl Harbor" on the T.V. depicting the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. I thought this isn't the best time to be showing a movie that is all about a point in history when the actions of the Japanese at that time where considered not their finest by many. I believe showing this film is casting a bad light on the Japanese at a point in time when they need positive support not negative. This poor country is going through such devastation right now between the earthquakes, Tsunami, and the nuclear scares not to mention all the lives that have been lost. I believe at this point in time we should not be pointing the finger at the Japanese.for their past mistakes, but to remember that we are all guilty of making mistakes. We must be ready to try and forgive others for their mistakes and from here we can move forward united and strong!

      Good points you got here. We should carefully consider our own words and actions while weighing their impact upon others before we speak or act. We are no better than others especially in the light of the vanity we experience in life. Very well said. Lol
