How Emotions Affect Speech: Paying Attention to Your Intentions

Emotions play an important role in the way we speak every day. I have often found myself in a negative frame of mind and having to back off when I notice the string of negative words coming out as I speak. Most of us wonder how emotions affect speech, but we are not aware of what is behind it. So paying attention to your intentions can help you become aware of how you are shaping your words.

For example, if something doesn’t go according to your expectations, you may feel sad, disappointed, angry, or frustrated. Your thoughts will align with the way you feel, and you will start talking in a sad, angry, disappointed, or frustrated way. The intention here is to express what you are feeling, but thoughts can easily become attached and focused on the victim, creating a new impulse that entangles you in this highly charged emotional state.

So if you already have an acquired scenario of being a victim in such circumstances, your mind picks this up and the story takes on a momentum of its own which becomes stronger and not so easy to release or let go. Once this stage is in motion, we have these roller coasters of emotions hitting us as our thoughts get out of control and we start to react or respond to these feelings. We start talking about how we feel and if we don’t control ourselves again, this gets us into trouble.

Thoughts then become things and begin to dictate our reactions to life experiences. Which then begin to indicate the intention set unconsciously by how we feel. Most of the time we are not even aware of how we have plummeted into this state of emotional reaction or the power of emotions behind it all.

Start paying attention to your unconscious intentions

Navigating this path is not easy; it requires commitment and a great desire for transformation. Many of us want to change, but very few can commit to the requirements for this growth. Self-awareness plays an important role in this process.

This doesn’t mean sitting down and examining every thought that crosses your mind, but simply becoming aware of who you are being in situations that puzzle you outside of your usual behavior. Then review how you can do better in the next experience. Finding out where you need emotional healing so that in your next encounter with an experience like that you respond to it instead of reacting from a victim standpoint.

Sometimes it asks you to ask another person for help, as it is not easy to see or check ourselves when we are stuck in certain ways. It may be necessary for another person who has a different perspective on your situation to help you identify and pinpoint areas that have patterns that you may need to change. So don’t hesitate to seek help, we are all in the process of learning this experience called life. Getting another person to help you is an empowering experience that will allow you to reach your full potential faster in your quest for self-improvement.
