Sticks and stones may break your bones…
But bones heal.
Your words will stay with me forever.
The scars you cannot see.
The beauty and power you’ve granted to me.
The insecurities I’ll never forget.
Words can make you feel.
It’s how we share emotions—how we express anger, hate, love, excitement, confusion, passion, frustration.
Sometimes, one slip up can break relationships. Sometimes, the right sentence can change the world for you. Sometimes, 3 simple words, when arranged together properly, can be one of the most powerful phrases you use. And sometimes choosing silence is more powerful too.
Sticks and stones can break our bones, but words can do much worse.
But words can also do much more.
