Misinterpretation of Words

Did you know that saying or having thoughts about being invisible to others is seen as a sign of depression?

I was not aware of this until recently, when it was pointed out to me. The person I was in conversation with asked me bluntly if I was feeling suicidal or depressed? I was taken aback but the person continued, that it was a sign of being depressed.

Yet again I was glad that I had not called my blog “Dear Invisible”. It has doubly reinforced for me, that just because I may have been overlooked or spoken down to, it is not the same as being invisible.

It has also shown me that expressions may be misinterpreted and that words even spoken as a throw away comment, can be very misleading.

Words can have so many meanings. It is important for each of us to realise that how we use words is our responsibility and once uttered cannot be retracted.

Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out. Auliq Ice.

  2. Irish Blessing ~
    Four things you cannot recover:
    The stone after the throw,
    The word after it is said,
    The occasion after it is missed,
    The time after it is gone.
