The combination of words can take us to the farthest reachest of our minds and help us escape to a magical world. Yet some people find it more entertaining to combine words to bring other people down. The ease that some people throw words at others to hurt them is truly disturbing. There is various campaigns out there that try and tell people to stop using words to hurt others. What I have come to realize is that the only real solution is to empower the people who the words are being thrown at.
Words only hurt when they hit on a sore spot. If you have doubts about yourself and someone brings them up then in your mind they are confirming your self doubts. Your insecurities allow empty words to take weight, and when people know the words hurt you they continue to use them against you. Only confirming your self doubts more and more.
Words are empty unless you let them carry meaning. If you become comfortable with who you are then nothing anyone says can hurt you.If you believe you are pretty then no matter who says you are ugly it won’t bother you. People’s opinions are based on their own mindset, so why should their standards be the definite word on you. If you see yourself as beautiful then you are beautiful.
Learn to accept and love yourself. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but words won’t be able to hurt. We all think we have imperfections but they are part of us, feel comfortable in your own body and mind. Learn to stop thinking of them as imperfections but as just you.
