Your Words Have Consequences

Words have consequences. People tend to push back when they disagree. What is the appropriate balance between your First Amendment rights and the consequences of your words? Words have consequences, so what you say should reflect your beliefs and feelings. It would be best if you did not say hateful, hurtful, or harmful things. 

The constitution protects the people and what they say, but does not protect you when it comes to business. Every employer has a code of conduct, and it is the employer’s right to discipline employees when it doesn’t align with their principles. Employees who do something the code does not allow can be penalized for it. 

Do people pick and choose when they want to turn their morality on? Sometimes, people who supported you earlier can suddenly turn their back on you. 

The cancel culture is not about justice; it’s about control. It can stem from an ownership mentality, wherein one tells others what to do. It is unacceptable to cancel people because you disagree with them. We must learn from each other and gain perspective on how people may feel. 

Key Points/Highlights:

  • Always accept responsibility for your words.
  • Ask yourself if what you are saying is hateful, hurtful, or harmful before you say it.
  • People tend to oppose when they disagree.
  • Be open to learning different perspectives from others, even if you don’t agree. 
  • Only say things that are consistent with your morals and beliefs.
