: : 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' s h i t, 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 s h i t. 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.
