Actions always speak louder than words.
Do you hear one thing but feel another?
Yes actions always speak louder than words because words are often lip service.
Words are often filled with empty promises.
Words are often the catalyst for broken promises, for without action, purpose, connection or truth what are the words really worth?
People will try to tell you what you want to hear or what best serves them or their needs.
Words are often used for manipulation, control, or to maintain power.
But what happens when you see through the lies or empty promises?
What happens when you can’t wait any longer for them to change & evolve?
What happens when the empty words are really just broken empty promises?
What happens when they continually don’t deliver?
How someone makes you feel says lots.
Do your thoughts, words & actions match?
Do you tell someone you love them & think that’s enough?
How do you show them & make them feel?
Do you actually deliver on your words, or are you really just filled with hot air & empty promises?
Are you stringing someone along?
Are your words manipulative or cruel, are you praying on someone’s kindness or vulnerability?
Humans need human touch & interaction.
It’s one of our most primal needs, along with survival, for without it we wither away, we detach, become hard & have trust issues, we become isolated.
You never forget an act of kindness.
You never forget that friend who was actually by your side when you wobbled.
That person who heard you say you loved something or your favourite special treat, then actually remembers & brings you that very thing, showing you they did listen, they did remember, they do care.
You never forget that person who makes you feel special, seen, heard, loved & safe.
You know how much it means when someone takes time out of their busy day to catchup with you, to call to hear your voice, to say hi I’ve missed you, I love you, how are you?
You feel special, loved, needed, like you belong.
Their words have intent or action.
How often do you hear people say, oh we have to catch up, after using your hospitality, yet never return the favour or organise anything?
How many times have you been there for people, yet who is there for you?
How confused do you get when people tell you one thing, but every action is the polar opposite?
How much pain & suffering have you endured because of misplaced loyalty, empty love, unbalanced relationships/friendships or honoring your words or promise?
How much time have you wasted waiting to finally feel what you hear?
My dear dad always told me, “Jenny Lee give someone enough rope & they will hang themselves”.
This was such wise counsel & has served me well throughout my life.
I hear the words, take them on face value, then sit back & watch their actions, or inactions.
I let them tell & show me their truths, who they really are.
It’s amazing to watch a fool think they can get away with something.
And you know what, when I’ve observed a glitch or bullshit, I don’t have to wait long or do a thing, because they always do hang themselves.
Their masks fall off pretty quick, or I learn another valuable lesson.
People are constantly telling you how important we are to them.
But do you listen or hear?
Do you pay attention?
The truth always sets me free.
Then my actions are swift & done.
I decide if my words, my love, my kindness, my light, my friendship are being honoured, used or reciprocated.
I will not waste my time or energy.
I will not be disrespected or dishonoured or undervalued by anyone.
I will disconnect, for I refuse to waste my energy now on anything but mutually benefitting friendships & relationships.
I become a ghost in your world.
Then my actions have spoken.
Life has taught me actions always speak louder than words.
Something to ponder,
Love, light & blessings
