I Know That Words Are Powerful

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 485 People

    The saying "Sticks and stones may break my

    bones, but words will never hurt me" is completely a lie. Words are very powerful things that could very much change someone's life, either in a terribly negative way or a greatly positive way. People sometimes don't realize this, unfortunately, especially, from my observations...

    And God "said". And Bam!

    , it was, because He spoke "The word" Life. The living word. Coincidentally, they also describe the power inside of people, or their minds or in certain places or specific things. When it comes to matters of the heart, I am Validus.

    A friend recently shared with me this letter

    from the author Victor Hugo (Les Miserables) to his lover Charlotte Drouet. The simple reading of his words made me shiver. I felt I had to translate is and share it with you. English translation: Night between the 17 and 18th February 1841 Can you remember my beloved...

    “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...

    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.

    Words. Words. Words. They are a reflection of

    meaning. We read words everyday. Everywhere. Just one simple word. It does not matter how many letters, whether it is just has one letter or fifty letters. Read them with caution. One slip up. It can cost you something good in life. Don't miss out because you overlooked it...

    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...

    Do you ever feel like

    when you said something you really mean it but suddenly you feel that you lose it meanings? And every time you feel it is the right time to say it, after you said that it turns out to be a bad time for you?

    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...

    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...
