    Why do words have to hurt

    so damn much? When are people gonna realize if they don't have anything nice to say, they should keep it to themselves?

    Words Can Heal The Human Soul

    Words are very powerful. It takes a second to say things that take a life time to heal. Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit. We all love to be right but its...

    Sticks And Stones.... Baloney!

    I was brutally bullied most of the time I was in school, so I know very well how deeply a word can cut.  Even a casual comment can draw blood if it hits a sensitive spot.I'd rather be physically beaten; wounds to my body will heal faster than those made by words.

    Teaching Words

    The old saying is..."If you cannot say something nice don't say nothing at all! I am no stranger to the power of words... it's part of my craft. Words come to life. Be careful what you say. Mean what you say and say what you mean!

    The Girl With Many Names

    There is a girl who is so lost in this world. She looks through her tears to see a constant changing world. No one knows how much she is hurting on the inside. Most do not know that the "game" they like to play is killing her inside out. With every word said to her, ugly, fat...

    Rather Be Beaten

    I would literally be physically pounded than be verbally abused.   Bruises on my body will heal fairly quickly...not so much the ones on my soul caused by cruel words.

    Of course they do, the effects are far more

    longer lasting than physical injuries, and can be more debilitating! I think this explains why I am so careful when I choose the words I say - I fully appreciate the impact they can have. And I'd never want to hurt anyone intentionally.

    'Be careful with your words.

    Once they are said, they can be only forgiven but not forgotten'. I had a so called friend who I thought I could trust. I was mentally abused by a family member, and I confided in her and told her everything. Eventually I stood up to my abuser, and told them enough is enough...

    Bruises Go Away....

    Personally, since I have been a victim of both physical and emotional/verball abuse, I would much rather, have someone beat the crap out of me, leaving me an inch for death, than to say hurtful words. Bruises can go away, but words that scar your heart, can stay their for a life...
