Speech - its importance in rela­tion­ships

Most people claim there is nothing more valuable than having family and friends, than being able to live in harmony with those around them. And yet, families experience such conflict, and so many friendships, unions and ties break up! Why? Because people are casual and negligent. Do you want to maintain good relationships with your family, your friends and all those around you? Watch what you are saying. And when you have to approach someone close to you about a delicate matter concerning them, think carefully about it first. In fact, generally speaking and whatever the matter in hand, it is better to weigh one's words carefully and, above all, not to give tit-for-tat responses. Because when you speak without having taken the time to think carefully, you often forget almost immediately what you have said. But those you have spoken to... well, they don't forget.
