5 minute think

If I’m being kind to you but you think I’m being horrible, am I being kind or not?
I think that it all comes down to people’s ways of saying things and how they say it. For example if your saying wow that’s cool to someones project to make it sound kind you need to add emphasis to your voice. Otherwise if you say it sarcastically or bordly then you’d make that person feel horrible about themselves and their work because they think your dissing it.

emphasis
noun
1.
special importance, value, or prominence given to something.
“they placed great emphasis on the individual’s freedom”
2.
stress given to a word or words when speaking to indicate particular importance.
“inflection and emphasis can change the meaning of what is said”
