HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO HURTS

Thursday, March 30, 2017



That Wednesday seemed to be a normal shift as everyone was focused on their daily schedule. In the midst of the silence that caressed the morning hours at the office,  Bola suddenly screamed, "I place a curse on the person that took the document". Her work colleagues raised their heads in shock and wondered what should warrant such statement. Has it come to that? 

Offences will always brew up at the workplace. Some could be so annoying that you loose your temper and interest in the job. At other times, you get so pissed off and experience a bad day. But at such times, what is the right attitude to display?

For me, occasional outburst to show your displeasure is acceptable. Choosing to express your dissatisfaction to the individual in question is a formal approach. But deciding to rain curses with further statements that nobody will eat your sweat, when the issue does not warrant it is uncalled for.

Religious folks who believe in vengeance prayers and damnation to their "enemies" should strike a balance between who their true enemy is and a colleague at work who stepped on their toe.

There are different ways of expressing your annoyance, especially in a corporate organisation. Learning to resolve conflicts without uttering statements that wound the soul and tarnish your hard-earned reputation should be your goal. While this piece is geared towards the workplace, the lessons learned should transcend to other areas of our lives.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, Oh Lord. 
Psalms 19:14

Food for thought

Do you tear others down with your words?
Do you blackmail close  associates to your advantage?
Do you spit out words that cut deep into the heart, leaving the hearers depressed with suicidal thoughts?

I have been a victim of hurtful words that stole my drive for life. Being a writer, I also know the effect that words can have on my readers.

If you and I will decide to tame our tongue and speak soothing words, the world will be a better place.
