Words again...

In a sudden flash of realization that words, whether written, read or spoken are a form of solace for any and everyone!

For some its reading their favourite psalm from the bible, for some its a verse from their favourite poem or a letter from their sweetheart. For a few its the comfort of spewing their emotions on paper or for that matter web space. And yet others feel better when they talk about what they are going through or maybe even talk about anything at all. Most commonly people would need to hear words of comfort.

Its so strange...the power of mere words. Although they affect the actual situation in no way. It is pleasant to drown in the relief that they provide and let them ease away all that's troubling us. But I wonder whether they are just another form of escape from actually facing the situation or do they act as medicine for the lacerations when handling life. Then again I remember... Sometimes its these very words that can leave you scarred for life!

Very true. I love to tell stories of my childhood to show empathy for someone's plight. Many times I can let them see that they will survive and that they are not alone.

sometimes it;s the tone and the look that accompany the words to make them pointed.

so true, and sometimes words are substitutes...

so true... i really liked the way you have portrayed words as escape hatches and then as injurious :)
@ the escape: writing may be a means of escape from the situation, but constructively so, and it nearly always clears the mind
hint: keep writing :P
