We all have something to say but these 5 questions could save us all alot of grief. The tongue can be quick and harsh if not controlled. 'True' is very important. We don't want to start a rumor or bear false witness. 'Helpful' --is what you wana say beneficial, encouraging? Or are your words adding flame to the fire? 'Inspiring' words can cause great things to happen. Words that motivate others often spread joy beyond that one person. 'Necessary' words can prevent harm or steer someone in the right direction. Your opinion is not always necessary tho, a listening ear may be all thats needed. 'Kind' words are always best. Words enriched with praise, appreciation, and love can go so much further in getting your point across.
Yes, its easier said than done but just 'T-H-I-N-K' on it before you speak abruptly.
