What we say, and How we say it ..


Words can be life-changing when it conveys the right message. We can say things in many different ways. However, the right words said at the right time could help people positively. We live in such a world that we get used to having people around who can easily demotivate us and put us down in the blink of an eye.

I spoke to a friend this evening on a video call; probably, a friend is not the right word to describe her; she is more like a sister to me. I met her first in London; she was my classmate while pursuing my second degree in the UK.

I remember once she approached me to ask something about what we learned and I told her it was not that difficult and advised her to google it. And to my surprise, she asked me, what is Google? Then I took her to a computer and showed her Google and how to browse. And that wasn’t the end, but the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Over time, we have done course assignments together and had a lot of meaningful conversations. We shared views on many topics with each other, which included career, life, where we see ourselves in future and so on.

It’s almost 11 years since we both became friends, and a few months ago, she mentioned joining a course and an interview she attended. She had to speak about who inspired her. She made me speechless again when she told me the person she spoke about was me.

Today, our subject of discussion was the course she was pursuing now in management. And she made my eyes brim with tears when she said not many days go by when she doesn’t think of me. I don’t know which of my words influenced her, but one thing I know for sure is that it made a difference in her life.

Words are one powerful thing that can make and break someone’s life. It can be equally delicate and potent. Even though this was not my merit (but all her hard work), I felt content to know that I became a reason for positive change in her life.

P.S. Let our words be constructive rather than destructive.

Much Love ❤️ God bless
