The importance of words in human life can’t be fully expressed. And the impact they leave on human life is also long-lasting. Therefore, it is essential to understand when to speak and shut up. When a person opens up their mouth, not a single word goes unnoticed, and it has the capabilities of wither construction or destructing relationships.
Pollution is one of the worst enemies of nature. Any substance that is not beneficial for the natural environment causes pollution. The presence of that specific material is harmful to the environment and its residents. There are different types of pollution, such as air pollution, water pollution, visual pollution, and light pollution.
Similarly, there is noise pollution that occurs due to excessive sound. A different perspective on noise pollution will be our main focus in this article. And that is the pollution of ill-speaking or speaking without thinking.
Sound is one of the biggest blessings from God. Life without sound is like a rainbow without colors. Different sounds help us to identify situations. God has created everything in balance; therefore, excess of anything is terrible. That’s where pollution starts.
Importance of words in our daily life
Words have great power, and they may either make one feel good or shame the other. Wisely chosen words reveal a person’s mentality and communication style. It is the act of expressing one’s thoughts, insights, and feelings. Many people recognize the significance of its expression, while others are unaware of it. Words have a power beyond term; they define what a person intends to say. It can influence the direction of one’s life, and choose words carefully to avoid hurting the other person.
Since childhood, our ancestors have taught us not to use harsh words to injure others. If you are polite and respectful, you will be rewarded. However, there are times when we use harsh words that harm the person. Words have a significant impact on connecting with others and making decisions. They can either inspire or make people cry.
These are the reasons why words are such an effective means of communication. Words are essential not just in everyday life but also in business. The proper use of words in sentences, whether spoken or written, gives a positive impression. On the other hand, many businesses fail to utilize the correct words or communicate effectively, especially when it comes to sensitive topics.
It is harmful to our ears and hearing ability. Everyone knows the general causes of noise pollution. People hardly think about another perspective that does not harm you physically but emotionally.
Problems in this world are not due to voice but noise. We can speak without creating tension but when there are malicious motives running in ones mind, the same speech becomes a literary noise.
We can transfer our thoughts and ideas to people around us. Spoken words also create sound. If you think deeply, what an excellent blessing communication is! Sharing emotions and feelings through words is such bliss.
Humans are social animal, and communication is the basic need of almost every individual. We want to speak, and we want somebody to listen to our thoughts as well. We contribute words to the emotional bank of our relationships. Things go well when there is a balance between the number of words you deposit and transact.
We cant see words, but they have the extreme power to make or break something. Our terms can encourage someone to achieve something extraordinary in life. Likewise, our words can act like a storm that takes away everything with it. Your ordinary words can have a tremendous impact on someone’s life. So, choose them wisely when you speak.
“Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.” – Oscar Auliq-Ice.
We now live in a world where there is too much noise around us. People don’t speak with the intent to convey something. They talk because they have to say something, and they are customary. People could be educated, but they don’t know how to check and measure the consequences of whatever they say. Asking people questions related to their personal life or passing comments on their life choices is people’s favorite activity.
Not every person in this world has steel nerves.
People are different. Not everyone is vital; not everyone is weak. Not everyone is sane; not everyone is insane. Some people don’t care about what others say, and some are much concerned about the opinions of others. We can’t blame people for being different. If we blame people, then indirectly, we blame God for creating this diverse yet beautiful world.
We have no idea how the noise pollution of our words is corrupting many lives.
It is straightforward for us to ask or say something. But we don’t realize the impact our questions and opinions can leave on somebody’s life. We tease people by asking what is not in their hands. We often speak to put shame on the injury.
A number of similar scenarios are here under.
- When are you going to get married?
- Any plan about kids?
- The first month of your marriage is over now, and you are still not expecting. Is your husband treating you right?
- Wow! You are expecting. Is that a baby girl or a baby boy?
- Congratulations on the arrival of your baby boy. May God bless him with another brother soon.
- Oh! It’s a baby girl. Better luck next time.
- It’s a baby girl again. Next time, you must consult a doctor if you want to have a baby boy. After all, your daughter will get married, and your son will be there to take care of you when you are old.
- You have only one kid. Why?
- You have two kids. Wow! That’s the spirit. Just stop here.
- You have five kids. Oh my God! Don’t you have anything else to do in life?
- Your kids are now at school-going age. It would help if you admitted them to some good English Medium schools.
- Yeah, that’s an outstanding school, but how will you afford its fee?
- How they will manage to take admission in some good university with these marks
- What are your kids up to?
- Your kids are done with the university. Did their university help them find a good job or a good partner?
- It is the right time for your kids to get married. You should see a guy/girl for him/her to start the same series of questions with them and their upcoming generations.
Let’s not be a part of the crowd. Let’s try to be different than the crowd by contributing the sweetness of words. We can prove going ahead in life is possible without pulling somebody’s leg to drag them down. Our sweet terms for lifting other souls can help us prevent the noise pollution caused by unwanted voices. Julia.A.Carney expressed a similar concept so beautifully in a stanza of her poem:
"Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our Earth and Eden.
Like the heaven above."
