When Words Trigger You

Posted by Val Fox on April 26, 2014 at 5:25 AM



This post is about word choices and the power they hold to trigger a reaction from others.  Read the following items.

I won!

It happened without warning.

He went wandering out there alone.

I was wrong.

Why do you never listen to directions?

The weather report issued a warning.

What I think doesn't matter.

We need to talk.

Where are the kids?

Will you sponsor me?

We're out of water.

You'd better watch your back.

Did you have a reaction to any of these statements? What does our reaction say about others..about us?  How does the context alter the meaning we get? Is there a word or phrase that triggers you each time you hear it? Words evoke a response even when it is not visible. 

                                           Words - The letter "W"

Thanks for stopping in as we head toward the finish line of the April 2014 A-to-Z Challenge where bloggers write almost every day of the month while following the letters of the English alphabet.
