Should I Speak...

When I am silent, I am accused of being aloof and uncaring; when I speak, my words seem to offend.  

Lord, I pray that the words I speak would always be the truth, but may they also always be spoken with compassion, love, and kindness...and if my words do hurt another, may it be because the words are truth, they are words that person needs to hear, and may the resulting hurt or anger in some way lead to a positive difference or change in their life.  

Please help me to be able to bear the brunt of their anger against me...and help me to accept the fact that our relationship might be forever changed...because I spoke.
