“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.”
I strongly believe in this. Anyone can say anything to appease me or tickle my fancy. But, I’ve learned that words are just words - it’s your actions that make the difference. Remember what we learned in English class? How a concrete detail is necessary to back up, support your topic sentence. Well, similarly, I’ve learned only to allow myself to believe one’s words so long as they provide me with concrete details, reasons as to why they mean what they say. Reasons, only valid to me, as actions. I mean, that’s fair, isn’t it? I owe it to myself to know better than to indulge in potentially false hopes created by false words. You know what they say, I need to see it to believe it.
