Oh Well

Have you ever had a conversation with someone, and you ask them a question or for a simple explanation and the only response that they can give you is “Oh Well.” Oh well, what exactly does that mean? Oh well, appears to be a signal to end the conversation, with no further interest in elaborating. It’s an attitude, a response of dismissal, end of discussion. Occasionally the “Oh Well, is not spoken, it’s just a look or a shrug of the shoulders. Oh Well, appears to be an attitude to take it for what it is.

The Oh Well, attitude is an informal way of saying that they have no concern or take any consideration for how their actions or lack of actions affects others. It also implies that there is not any interest in being better, having a better attitude or improving as a human being. Those with this attitude only want to do what they do and is offended when there is an offer of advice or correction. They are instantly on the offense when questions are asked of their actions or the reasoning behind a decision that they have made. This should not be so, the oh well, attitude is emotionless and inconsiderate of others. They should be more concerned about how their actions or lack of actions will have on others. It is possible to be better by being interested in how their actions affects others. Take time to listen, get a good understanding of what’s being asked, and look for a better response than oh well!

So, before taking that Oh Well, attitude or response the word of the Lord should be considered, the scripture reads in Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. The message is a reminder that there is power in the words that are spoken and to be careful, for those very words may come upon you when you least expect it. Do not be dismissive of others, take time to hear them out, care about what concerns others, and respond with the right attitude. I Will, Will You?
