Language: Bridge or Barrier?

I believe, language was originally made and developed so that people would be able to communicate themselves better to others. With language, we can tell others what we really want, what we need, what we intend to do, so we can help others understand us and help ourselves understand others.

It is sad though for people who first developed language to see how it is used now. It’s disappointing to witness people intentionally use language to decieve, to give the wrong idea, to make others misunderstand.

If we don’t have language, if we can’t talk to say how we feel, what we want, what we need, will we be more responsible of how we communicate? Will we be more cautious of how we make others feel? Will we be more mindful of what we do? Will we want others to misunderstand us when it is more difficult to explain ourselves?
