I Know That Words Are Powerful

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 364 People

    What you say can really hurt people :|

    Sometimes you won't see it and then when it's really obvious and they're showing it, it's too late to fix or they won't accept anything from you ever again because they're afraid to be hurt again. Words can be powerful in stories, love and in death.

    The Lord led me to a scripture verse in the

    Bible this morning. "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." Proverbs 18:4-7 A lot of us could avoid disappointment and heartache if we would just change the way we speak and think and pray. In Jesus name, you have the...

    The long and hard battle was fought And lost.

    She retreats, wounded to the shower. All lights turn off. There's no one there. No one with her. She is alone, cowering over her wounds and the ones she's caused. No one can hear her scream, no one can hear her cry. Her silence is her only cry for help, and it is ignored...

    Once spoken, they cannot be taken back.

    I cannot forget the ugliest of things spoken to me and I cannot forget the most tender of things spoken to me. I cannot forget the words that made me feel like I was someone's everything and I cannot forget the words that made me feel like I would never mean anything to anyone...

    The Power Of Description

    I once had a job where I took my lunch in a quiet room and wrote my thoughts. I fell into a rhythm of describing the same street and scene that I saw every day. I live in Oregon, so many days were rainy, cool, and what some would call dreary. But, in this excorcise I learned...

    “So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays...
