Interpreting Words


All in the Ears of the Receiver


The beauty of interpreting others words is a beautiful mess.  No matter what you say, write or do, someone is going to interpret your words how they hear or see it. Even if your point was completely different, someone can easily twist your words.

Everyday I write these blogs for you to read and interpret the meaning of it. What you are reading is probably different from what I am writing. It may also hit you differently than the person on the other screen next to you reading this too. That’s the beauty of writing, it can be morphed in some many ways.

With the power of writing, comes great responsibility in a sense.  The issue now is in this social media world, everyone is a writer. You can post your facebook status about the people you think are stupid or something you hate. This may flip a switch with someone in a good or bad sense. Even if you are just venting, be careful what you post or say. Someone on the other end may take offense.

Now growing up my father told me two things never to talk about it; this was politics and religion. The reason being, you never know who you are truly going to offend. The smallest wrong word could take a civil conversation into a giant, hateful debate. Sadly, I see it too many times on the social world people voicing their thoughts on these subjects and not agreeing with the response from others.

Another issue is when a debate arises, keep it professional. Never use curse words, name calling, or hateful smart mouth remarks. Once you make remarks just labeled, you lost the argument and the respect of the other. Probably made them a little more mad and reason starts to go out the window. This leads to hate, resentment, and probably a fight.

The best thing to do is shut up and listen to the other you offended. No matter who is talking, listen in the debate and acknowledge their side of the argument. Then repeat what they state in a sense and respond with your answer. Show them respect and mostly they will do it in return. If they can’t and you are on the receiving end. Just stop the argument and agree to disagree and walk away.

Interpreting words is every day life here in this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
