Words Meant Said 

 

We often say the words that we did not mean to say and we end up hurting someone close to us, or even sometimes colleagues. We also do not express the words that we want to say sometimes, which can feel like mental suffocation. Writing what we want, or rather what we would like to say to the people around us is the best way to ensure we will say what we really mean. Doing so can open doors; specifically, the best door ever—our mouths. 

 

Written Words are louder than Actions 

 

Some of us feel that we lack clear communication skills and that our non-verbal expressed thoughts are inferior to those with bigger vocal cords. That is not the case; our voice is as big as anyone else's no matter our shape, size, race, or nationality. Some people in general are loud mouths or outspoken because of the traits that they picked up from their childhoods or mimicked according to their surroundings. Yet that does not make what is coming out of their mouths clearer than our non-verbal expressed thoughts. They say that actions speak louder than words, on the contrary; I believe written words speak louder than actions. 

 

Actions Without Words

 

When there is no command there is no action. The command must be said in our mind in order for the body to obey. In essence, what happens when we construct our thoughts into written words? Our actions are most likely successful, this includes verbally pronounced and physically expressed; when we write what we want to say or do, it is more likely profound. 

 

Go General

 

Write down how you would like to act and react to people. There's no need to specify in our writings because there are always different circumstances where we would have to alter our actions, so play with it—have fun. Write particular things that you have not said in the past or want to say in the future. Without targeting a specific person or thing; generalize the topic. 

 

Words Matter

 

Doing this brings us closer to alignment with our true voice (the unspoken you). Next thing we know, we will be able to express exactly what's in our minds. It’s not easy, it takes practice, and writing is our best sparring tool. 

This is turning words into matter:

When an actor goes over a script, after careful study, reciting his/her lines over and over, he/she then focuses on becoming the character; executing those words into action. 

And we believe the actor—we listen to his/her clear expressions. 

Write down what you want to convey especially if you're not good at doing it from the top of your head. Become the character that you were seeing while writing these unexpressed thoughts, then, execute! Just like the actors.
