Choosing Your Words Carefully

May 03, 2018 / Communication     

Words are powerful. Words can build up. Words can tear down.  It’s so important to be careful what you say, especially in marriage.  There are four toxins of the tongue that can cause great marital harm.  First, sarcastic words.  Sarcastic comments like, “Hey, the laundry doesn’t clean itself” cause discord and can corrupt what was once a happy relationship. Second, unsupportive words.  Your spouse shares with you their dream to run a marathon. You respond with, “Are you sure you can handle that?” You kill your spouse’s dream…and their confidence to do big things in life. Here are the rest of the 5 Toxins of the Tongue That Can Poison Your Marriage.
