Actions Speak louder than words

How easy is it to get caught up in what people say, and not pay attention to what they actually do? Think about all of the times you have believed what somebody has told you, even when their actions told you otherwise. Why do we do this to ourselves?

I think a lot of the times we want to give people the benefit of the doubt, and believe that what they are telling us is true. We see the potential they have to follow through with their actions, so we assume that that’s exactly what they’re going to do. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with having faith in somebody and believing their words, but it is also very important that what they say aligns with that they do. This applies in all aspects from relationships, friendships, work, etc.

When dating, how often do we see people for who they could be, but not for who they are? How many times do we choose to believe the excuses, but not the reality that is right before our eyes?  It’s hard not to give in to the words. Trust me, I’m guilty too, which is why I wanted to write this blog.

I just want this to be a reminder not just for you, but for me as well, that we should not just listen to words, but also pay attention to actions. As the classic saying goes, “Actions, speak louder than words.” Be careful, and do not let someone’s words blind you from their behavior.

¿Que tan fácil es creer todo lo que nos dice una persona, y no poner atención a sus acciones? Ponte a pensar en todas las veces que creíste lo que te dijeron, aunque sus acciones decían lo contrario. ¿Por qué nos hacemos esto a nosotros mismos?

Pienso que muchas de las veces le queremos dar el beneficio de la duda, y creemos que lo que nos están diciendo es la verdad. Vemos el potencial que tienen para tomar acción en lo que nos dicen, así que asumimos que eso es justo lo que van a hacer. No me mal interpreten lo que les estoy diciendo, no tiene nada de malo tenerle fe a alguien, y creer lo que nos dicen, pero también es muy importante que lo que nos dicen se alinee que lo que hacen. Esto aplica en todos los aspectos como las relaciones, las amistades, el trabajo, etc.

¿Cuándo estamos saliendo con alguien, que tan seguido vemos a las personas por lo que pueden ser, no por lo que son? ¿Cuantas veces decidimos creer las excusas, y no la realidad que tenemos al frente?  Es difícil no caer en las palabras. Créanme, yo también soy culpable de hacerlo, y es por eso que escribo este blog.

Quiero que simplemente sea un recordatorio no solo para ustedes, si no también para mí, que no solo debemos escuchar lo que nos dicen, pero también debemos poner atención a las acciones. Como el dicho clásico, “Una acción, vale más que mil palabras.” Tenemos que tener cuidado, y no dejar que las palabras de las personas nos cieguen de la realidad de sus acciones.

  1. Wow. Very well worded.

    My ex-girlfriend use to say “don’t tell me you love me, show it”….no matter how many times I felt like saying it, she would remind me of things I could DO to show it and then I wouldn’t even have to say it…she taught me a lot. Your blog totally says it well! You’re good with words.

    1. THANK YOU! It is true, words can only mean so much on their own, they must be followed by actions. I am so glad you enjoyed the blog, and I appreciate your words 🙂
