“Words can make you, break you. They can heal your soul. They can damage you forever.”
Are you affected by the things others say about you? And do you let those words hurt you?
What actually happens is the echoes of what someone else has said about you keeps repeating over and over again in your head and you just can’t seem to shut it out. Right? Sometimes, it also happens that some words hurt you way more than they should or they have intensity to because of the person who said it. We often say harsh things to people we actually love and care about. But is it their mistake that we are in anger? Is it their mistake that we are not in a mood to talk?
We care too much about what others think about us.
As writers, we know Words have influence and impact. Most of us use words to delight and entertain people. We use our words to inspire, motivate, help those in need and to give the voice to the hopeless. But there are others who use words as weapons. Trolls, Bullies, etc. only seek to hurt and harm others. Negative comments is not a solution to vent out your anger or frustration. i get it that you don’t like a particular person, photo, video or content, but can’t you just skip it? or ignore it? Why to post a negative comment? Is it really necessary?
“Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs. ”- Pearl Strachan Hurd
We should be sensitive enough to understand that words do have power to hurt us. Words can either break your heart or make you laugh. People usually say before thinking. Normally joking around about someone, their physical features, their way of speaking, or their behaviour, may hurt that person more than we can even imagine. We should know what to joke about and what not to. We should know the value of words and be careful while using them because the words we use to talk to someone, to talk about someone tells more about us than who they are. Words are free, it’s how you use them may cost you!
“Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate, and to humble.” -Yehuda Berg
It’s very easy to put voice to our feelings and thoughts; however, it takes control, strength, and absolute integrity to express ourselves in a positive way no matter the situation. It is your choice to use words that inspire or destroy. We have to keep this in mind that once said, those words can only be forgiven not forgotten.
So, Keep reminding yourself to use positive words no matter what the situation is. Negativity never helps you deal with anything but positivity sure does!
