The soul of words

How words create our own reality. . .

Thrive Global invites voices from many spheres to share their perspectives on our Community platform. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and opinions expressed by Community contributors do not reflect the opinions of Thrive Global or its employees. More information on our Community guidelines is available here.

Words have soul, or they may be a reflection of our soul when we use them. They have such a decisive importance that, for example the word kotodama, in Japanese language, refers to the belief in this culture about the indwelling power of words.

Words create realities, or perhaps I should say, they create our own perspective of reality; these form interpretations from our own point of view. When they manifest, there is no way back. . .

Words can build walls or vanish them; they can be precise, executive or unclear; they can create beautiful foundations, or can manipulate, divide or destroy. . . Regardless their use; they always produce a consequence and unleash an emotional reaction.

I sometimes wonder how aware we are when we use them, how much we honor them, or if we use them and think are taken off by the wind. . .
