Words Hurt

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

That’s a lie.

Sticks and stones are variables.

Depending on the size

Depends on whether or not we break.

But words are variables too.

If they are positive, they obviously can’t hurt us.

But when they are negative…

Ugly, fat, disgusting.

These types of words

They can break us.

Words mean more to us

than we would like people to believe.

And Hate is a strong word.

Words describe thoughts

Feelings

Perceptions

And all that we have to give to the world.

But negative words can do more damage to someone than any

stick

or

stone.

Words can break us

Inside.

And that’s where it really counts.
