The last place I expected to understand the depth, meaning, and the significance of this verse was 7200 miles away in India, with the people who I grew up with.. People I once called friends and people who have taken the liberty to say things that at the very least hurt like hell. It took me 7200 miles and 6 years away from Delhi, to finally realize how much I need to check myself and the way I use my words.. I once told a friend words can kill, and oh did I die this year or not.. I went for my best friend’s wedding, but I also ended up attending the funeral of my old self.. The self that used words way too freely, and way to carelessly, fully aware of the power they hold.. And when that same behaviour came back to bite me in the form of someone I once called friend lying/gossiping about me.. I wasn’t sure how to respond or react.. I’ve made my mistakes.. I have my faults, but I don’t think I deserve this.. And I wasn’t sure of what to think at first except, “I’m going to hurt him so bad..” and then the realization dawned.. What goes around comes around..!! And as I write this I am making myself a promise, to be aware of the words I use and how they affect others, and to not abuse this power of words..!! So Help me God..!!
