: : I feel the need to express my absolute disagreement and anger towards the above phrase. it is so easy to say this 'sticks and stones' shit, but it is an entirely different matter applying it. words dont hurt, they KILL!! now please do not be shocked by my boldness but I really do mean what I say. now lets take for instance words that are said to us by our parents or care-givers. if they tell us we are fat or thick, then we believe this shit. all our lives we carry these words in our subconsious. forget the lovely words that anyone tells us, it is only the negative we focus on. dont ask me why, I am still trying to figure that one out. so stick your sticks and stones up your arse and get real and sort that one!!! jacquline lloyd firstname.lastname@example.org
Words can and do hurt us. Words are powerful.
