Think and Choose Your Words Wisely(Razors Tongue).


Some people seriously do not think before they begin to speak. They have an unfiltered mouth, which sometimes results in them saying reckless things. Whatever comes to their minds, is what comes out of their mouth. People like this often find that their mouths tend to get them in trouble. Are you one of these people? Do you know someone like this? I'm almost willing to bet you do. What's up everyone? I go by the name of Brad H, and this is another edition of 'Brad H's Perspective.' Thanks for tuning in.

Many of you may be familiar with the term 'Razors Tongue.' You probably have heard it in a song, or maybe you've heard someone mention it. After doing some research myself, I found that there have been several songs made with this particular title. I'll admit myself that this blog post was inspired by a song I heard with the same title. I first heard it as an instrumental on one of K-Murdock's beat albums. However, this version I'm referring to had a singer on the song. The song was on a free download album that I downloaded towards the end of last year. The album is by K-Murdock, and is titled "Champloo'd."

I don't know who the singer on the song is, but I really thought some of the lyrics hit home. I liked the lyrics so much, that I went on Word Is Bond's Facebook page, and asked who the singer was. Unfortunately, I didn't get a reply. Basically the song was trying to convey that sometimes words can be hurtful, and how we should think them out before we speak. He started the song out by saying "Those words are so much more than a playful pun". I personally found these words to be true. Some people say some of the most hurtful things to upset others. Then we have some people who say things with no intent on hurting someone, however, someone may take offense to their words.

I personally feel that the latter isn't necessarily in the wrong. Lets face it, we've all said things that may have hurt or offended someone - even if we didn't intentionally mean to. We are all different, and react differently to things. Some people know how to brush off a playful joke, while others may take offense. I've always believed that words can be more hurtful than a punch. Think about it for a sec. If someone punches you, it will hurt maybe for a few minutes. Words on the other hand can have a much more powerful effect. They can become instilled inside of our minds, which makes it harder to forget about them. This is how emotional abuse can start for some.

I try to view things from all sides, so I will say that many of us need to develop tougher skin when it comes to what others may say regarding us. We can't always allow what others say affect us too much. On the other hand, some of us really need to choose our words more wisely. I guess the point I'm trying to make is what the song itself was making. Think over your words before you start popping off. I know that some people have no regard for saying hurtful things, but your actions can find you in a lot of trouble. You never know how others will react to what you say, and some people have been known to retaliate in not so kind ways. Always make your points, but try to maintain a level of respect as well.

Well that's it for this edition of 'Brad H's Perspective.' I hope you enjoyed reading, and remember to think before you speak. See you all soon!

  1. Hey Brad ! This was a great post ! I don't think people realize how words do cut deep. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me is a coping mechanism we use as human. On the other hand you are right ! Some of us do need to develop tougher skin ! I look forward to reading more posts from you ! :)

  4. Very good post. Thanks. I have been known to unintentionally use a razors tongue and hurt people I should not have. The main time this really hurts is in children. I still remember being called names because I was overweight as a kid and wore glasses. Some were quite inventive. The point is, I was about 10 or so then. I'm 70 now. Words do hurt. Kids have no defense. Adults can grow a thicker skin, which I have now.
