Words matter!  Words have energy and power and paying attention to what we say is fundamental to living our life with integrity.

When we speak, we should speak with mindfulness, in a way to solidify peace and compassion in our characters. Not only do our words matter, but also the tone which we use has a huge impact.

There are certain rules that should guide all our communications with others.  Always speak the truth, avoid exaggerations, be consistent in what you are saying, don’t use double standards in addressing people, don’t use your words to manipulate others, and most importantly do not use words to insult or belittle anyone.
