    Words stay with you longer

    than the pain of any physical contact do. Words are not as easily forgotten as the actions that led up to them being said. Words can destroy or elevate, physical contact is the action from words . Name calling is 10000 times worse than being hit, you can defend yourself from a...

    I do a great deal of writing.

    I journal, write my thoughts, write poetry - ways of getting my feelings out more than anything. I've always felt the gravity of words, the power the hold. I've known people who throw words around carelessly or worse, say things they don't mean. I have recently become...

    Words Can Never Hurt Me ... Not True At All

    My greatest hurts and my greatest peace has come from words. When I was feeling very alone the word that I loved the most was 'we'. When someone said to me " we will sort it out" I felt at once changed and no longer alone and afraid. The word 'we' to me is still...

    It might seem odd, but I do really have a beef with people using that word. My children have tried to use it, and whenever they don't like something they say: It's stupid. I have duly asked them not to use such a blanket judgment and to elaborate the reasons why they don't like...

    The tongue, so the proverb goes,

    can break a bone. Our words have the power to uplift someone or cut them to the quick. If we can't control this one small part of our anatomy, how can we even begin to control ourselves at all?

    So Weird

    Someone can say a sentence or a few words, and those words can make or break that person. They can inspire, they can destroy. Words can do anything, and beyond that. They can cause psychological damage, or build a person up to become great. That's why we need to be so careful...
