While speaking and talking to men, I overheard some interesting comments. For this speaking event there were a large number of men in the room. I began my talk by sharing briefly my inspiration to write a book.
Bloom Girl Bloom (Real Women with Real Answers) grew from my interviews with women and through those who answered my blog. I asked questions and they freely, sometimes very emotionally, answered them. I was sensitive and careful if I saw that they were tender in some areas. I tried not to be nosy. This was confidential research for me. It was as though I was behind doors and overhearing women’s thoughts that were spoken out loud.
As I spoke with this group of men I heard a couple of them say, “I hope she didn’t talk to my wife.” Those statements surprised me and I smiled. These men might have been thinking that I had identified real people with authentic names. I could see the concern in their faces. What they didn’t know is that I had not talked to any of their wives. I knew many of them but as I spoke I showed no judgment or criticism. I shared laughter and deeper thoughts of life.
Are you concerned if someone should choose to quote you on any issue of life? We should always be purposeful and thoughtful so that we might uplift and renew others. I don’t want anyone close to me telling someone or everyone unkind things I may have said. We must be mindful of how we speak and realize that what we say affects those around us.
Are your words worth repeating? Are you known for your stubbornness or your thoughtfulness?
