it's funny how the words around us can push, prod and ultimately alter the course of our existence.
we may not realize it but the things that those (whom we take seriously) around us say can alter how(or in some cases "if") we view a particular subject.
Paul and Christie are close friends, closer'n dirt. Paul learned to drive from his dad, Christie from her mom. Paul's father is a careless driver with habits that rubbed off effectively and now his son texts, drinks, and closes his eyes to sing along to music while he drives ( sometimes all at the same time). Christie's tutelage was quite the contrary. Her mother taught her to be a highly cautious driver; her only points off during the driving test came from her failure to signal 100ft before a turn. Which her perfectionist mother couldn't help but bring up immediately after the test even though her daughter passed with a near perfect score.
Bringing it up that one time was all it took.
a couple years later, paul's drunktextsing driving as he follows christie on the way to party (after pre-gaming heavily at his house prior to meeting up to follow his lady friend). There's a hidden turn coming up and they're traveling at lets say 50-60mph. The song hits the chorus and paul goes to close his eyes 115ft before the turn. Just as his stupor infused mind is sending the signal to close his eyelids christie's mother's comment pops into her head and she nonchalantly flips her directional at exactly 100ft as she has with every turn since the test. Seeing the directional Paul realizes his breaks are needed and snaps to attention to safely make the turn.
now had she not been so anal about the turning signal due to her mother's comment after the test christie could have been in an accident due to her friend's carelessness. Of course this situations highly hypothetical and simply meant to accentuate a point. The comment in this case was a lifesaver, but in most real life situations it can often be difficult (and occasionally prudent) to determine the effect our words may have on their target.
I'm by no means a saint, i throw my words like there's no tomorrow; and its only today that i started to realize the weight of things i've said in the past. Will i change for the better because of this realization? nope I'll probably just store it away for awhile and eventually forget it like i do most everything these days.
