#1 Heartiest vs Heartfelt – in Context of Condolences.?

Innumerable times I have come across this specific gaffe.

[Gaffe by the way is an unintentional remark or blunder causing embarrassment to the originator according to the web version of Oxford meaning].

? Heartiest and Heartfelt need not mean the same.

While for happy occasions both can be used, For Sad ?occasions only heartfelt should be used.

?Heartiest means happy, loud, vigorous and synonyms are cheerful, joyful and similar.

?Heartfelt on the other hand can be used for happy occasions as appreciation, gratitude and for Heartfelt condolences. 

⚠️ Be aware that though both are from the heart the context is different.

? Your colleague got the promotion you were expecting and you have to send a message without appearing petty or disappointed.

? Your colleague has lost a dear one and needs your support.

To help you choose those words I am starting a new service ‘????? ?????????,’

You can use it or recommend me to a friend.

The emotion is yours, the words are yours , the context is yours and the writing ✍️ is mine, ‘yours sincerely,’.

If you need help give me a shout or a whisper.


P.S. Next post is on two words starting with in……
