Actions speak louder than words means that what someone does has more impact and intention than simply what someone says. As words are easy to speak, actions take more energy and show your intentions by their very nature.
I had lied for so long that I didn’t even know what the truth was any more. When I started to get well, my family and friends found it hard to trust me. So I had to gain their trust by my actions, not what I said. It took a long time of doing the right thing, key word – “doing” the right thing. Words no longer mattered unless they were followed by action.
Honesty became the best policy. My life has become lots of quotes, idioms, and actions through experience. As long as I continue to do the “right” thing and carry those “things” through I will grow and be fine.
