When we talk, how does it sound?
Does it feel like a love language or does it feel like a challenge? Each conversation brings its own topic to light through tone of voice, the underlying sentiment or frustrations that are being communicated with dynamic vibrational delivery.
Not only do we choose worlds to say to one another but we express how we feel through our tone of voice. Often unaware of the way we might sound to the person we are talking to, until it’s too late. What if we made a conscious effort to deliver our words with a tone of voice that enhanced the conversation instead of sweeping it up in a wave of emotion? What if we ask ourselves what we want to be communicating through the tone of our voices alongside the actual words?
Some words carry their own tone, an added complexity to intentional vocalizations. Explosive words, harsh words and expletives blast their way through a conversation and can be damaging while soft and sweet toned words imply a certain tenderness. These words are built for delivering a message regardless of how you say them.
Just try and say “ I love fuzzy bunnies” with an angry explosive tone. Do you believe the tone or the words? Does the message work?
