sticks and stones may break my bones...

and words sometimes hurt me.

Yup. This is how I'm feeling today. May not be right of me, and may be childish..but it's how I feel just the same.

It just seems to me that sometimes people say things just to see if I will react to it. To see if their little daggers will effect me.

I'm trying my best to roll with the punches...just not let anything get to me. But I'm not perfect. I've asked the Lord to help me in this area, that he may take away my negative attitude toward people and replace it with love. This part of me is still under construction. Please bare with me. =)

I'm sorry that someone said something hurtful to you. :( Words do hurt.

I don't know why people are so hurtful and cruel with their words; if the words they use towards others were used towards them, I don't think they would find it all amusing, yet they seem to have no problem inflicting pain on others. Do not understand this. I think that's why the Bible has so many proverbs about controlling the tongue and also how the book of James has a lot of information about how hurtful the tongue can be

I'm so sorry you were hurt by the actions of another in this way

those words... words of people with little compassion, little understanding, little else to do with their time but judge others. They have much desire to hear their own voice, much need to hurry you through for their own benefit, and much judgment they bring on themselves by judging us. It's really a shame for them... they just don't know it do they?
