Posts Tagged ‘Word Games’

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you in the past, and last Saturday I did the first of these for a wee while, so I thought I’d do another one today. When you read each word, please note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word – Don’t take time to think about your answer, as it’s your initial response that’s important here.

So here goes…

1. Glasgowpower-of-words

2. Money

3. Frightened

4. The armed forces

5. Video

6. Shopping

7. Water

8. Arthritis

9. Child abuse

10. Language

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

1. Home

2. Bank

3. Scared

4. War

5. DVD

6. Chore

7. Swimming

8. Pain

9. Criminal

10. English

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing these, as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

I sometimes just pick some really random words and just try this myself just to see what my answers are – I know that really does sound sad, but I often find it illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…I’d urge you to try it out for yourself.

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you in the past.

Ever come across someone who appears to listen to you but later shows they really haven’t listened to a single word you’ve said?

I would guess we all know someone like that! I would also guess that they are not particularly caring people when it comes to others, am I right?

J Clarke once said

One who cares is one who listens.

and that kind of sums up what I was saying doesn’t it.

Of course there is one person who we can all talk to who I guarantee will always listen to every word you say, and will show is love and compassion for you on a daily basis. Do you know who I’m talking about?

GOD!

Don’t ever stop caring about others. Be Christ-like and listen to what others say to you and saw you care about them.

Do you like these Word Association games? As I’ve said in my previous word association posts, I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answer!

I still think when we truly do respond with the first words that come into our mind, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

As I said before, I sometimes just pick some really random words and just try this myself just to see what my answers are – I know that sounds really sad, but I often find it illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…I’d urge you to try it out for yourself.

Today I’m going to throw some more words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of your answers surprise you? What about my answers, were any of them the same as mine?

I love these word association games, especially if we really do say the first word that comes into our mind when the hear the trigger word. I think when we do that our answers, tell us a lot about what’s on our mind, and what’s important to us. So bearing this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

As I said before when I posted my first Word Association blog post, I sometimes just pick some really random words and just try this myself just to see what my answers are – I know that still sounds really sad, but I often find it illuminating to discover what is occupying my subconscious…I’d urge you to try it out for yourself.

Yesterday in Tears, I spoke about some of the situation and events that made me shed a few tears in the last few weeks. Today I want to continue thinking about the things that upset us, and make us cry.

There are two things which I reckon are the most common reasons why we cry – One I touched on yesterday, death of a friend or family member, and secondly hurtful words spoken to us or received in a letter/email/text.

Unfortunately, death is one of the inevitable things about life, because it comes to us all eventually. That however doesn’t make it any less painful for us when a loved one or a friends dies, particularly when it happens unexpectedly.

Hurtful words however are something which we can do something about, we can be careful and considerate in everything we say or write so that we do not hurt someone’s feelings or cause offence.

Yes, I’ve been talking about hurtful words and how they can upset us, however on the opposite end of the scale, words can often be the thing that provides comfort and reassurance to us when we are upset. i.e. Words are one of our main means of communication with one another, either verbally or in written format, and that’s why words can mean the world to someone or mean hurt, pain and resentment to others.

Be careful what you say, be careful what you write, as you could change someone’s life for the worse by saying a wrong word. Try to say things that will mean the world to someone, your words could make a massive positive difference in their life.
