The first of the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is “Be impeccable with your word.”
Your words have power and magic in them. Use your words with conscious deliberation. Don’t just speak to fill up the silence; we need the silence more than we need the speech. Most people cannot see this point. Our words must be used to heal, empower and inspire others. If what you are about to say to someone doesn’t lead to them being a better person, STOP, TAKE A BREATH, and ASK…
Is what I am about to say an improvement to silence right now?
