While the old saying ‘Actions speak louder than words‘ is documented to people, it’s with good reason.
If we wish to measure a far better life, we’d like to settle on the people in our lives by their actions and not by what they need us to believe to be true about them.
People say things they don’t mean on a day to day. We throw out fake apologies, and that we sometimes even tell folks that we care once we know that deep inside we don’t. And while this might be a touch harsh, it’s something that we frequently cannot control. But so as to be better we must follow abreast of our words with actions. Otherwise we’ll not be ready to form healthy relationships in our lives.
We remember people by their actions, not so much by their words.
Making sure that we keep our promises, act honorably, and guide others to do the same is crucial for a healthy society.
The people who love you the most will not waste precious time trying to persuade you to become honest and honorable if you are not willing to make that change yourself.
They will not be there for you when you’re at your lowest if you were not there for them when they were suffering and needed you.
On the same note, do not let someone persuade you with words to get you where they want you to be. Instead, make them prove they are honest and mean well by showing themselves in action.
