How Shouting Reflects on Us

The tone of voice gives away more than words do – it’s accountable for 55% of the meaning of the conversation. How come we are paying so little attention to it?

Just like spoken word was taught and learnt, voice inflections are the reflection of how the people we surround ourselves by speak. Shouting is one of the shocking uses of the voice that creates build up, negativity, anger. If we heard shouting rather than expressing emotions in an articulated way, we will likely think of that as normal behavior and perpetuate it.

Why stop shouting?

  • deal with your emotions in a controlled way
  • share your fears rather than anger-sharing words
  • heal instead of amplifying pain

Use your calm voice and life might get better bit by bit.
