words.

WOAH 2 posts in one day! I'm probably not going to do this a lot, but I just have some stuff on my mind and I really need to get the, out before I explode.

words.
words hurt.

Whoever cam up with the saying "Sticks and stones may break me bones but words will never hurt me." needs to reevaluate their life, and if that is still true then wow can I have their life.

Words have so much power over us, they can bring us down in a matter of seconds and then the right words can build us back up. And no matter how hard you try certain words can't be erased from your memory. Words can be like a bullet straight through your heart or a soft blanket over your body. Either way words are important, and it matters how you use them. The things you say to people whether it be a little comment or a huge paragraph effect them, even if you don't think it does.

I wish I could be positive and say "Oh but it shouldn't hurt you because God is the only one that matter and His words and his judgement are the only things that should effect you." And the truth is words are gonna hurt no matter what. Whether you have the strongest faith ever, when someone says something that hurts you, it stings. But that doesn't mean that we live in that stinging feeling. It will hurt for a long time, but with the strength we can find in our Lord and Savior we can get up from that pit that the words have placed us in. We can move one, it will just take some time.

The same goes for the people that are receiving our words. The words that come out of mouth, we can never take back. We need to watch what we say and who we say it to. And no matter how much we try to make up for what we said, it's gonna take some time for that person to forgive us and move on.

People need to except that, everything takes time.
I leave you now with some quotes that I feel wrap up this entire post.
"Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out."
~Unknown
"A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words."
~Unknown
"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."
~Mother Teresa
"When people let you down, God will pick you up."
~Unknown
And last but not least, and probably my favorite:
"Don't worry what people think... they don't do it much."
~Unknown
