I honestly don’t think the saying “Actions speak louder than words.” hold in today’s world.
Successful people are usually good public speakers. Do they always honour their words? Go figure. I could care less about that.
I’m just amused and disheartened (is that possible?) at the same time that despite what I’ve done for others, their impression of me drastically changes because of some things I said. Well, it doesn’t really matter now.
Learn to speak well, don’t be yourself. I’m sure people will like you more that way.
