Is That True That Words Can Never Hurt You?

That old rhyme says that words can never hurt you, but that is so wrong. Words are not just words alone, but they are said with emotion and meaning. And they are perceived that way as well. We are not robots who always process words logically or in some standard form. We process words and the intent behind them based on many varied factors in our lives and this is different to each individual.

We are all unique, right down to our fingerprints. Billions of people, but all different. Sure we have similarities, but no one can really say what another is feeling or truly know the intricate details surrounding how someone is perceiving any given thing or set of words shared with them.

How sad it is that some people allow negative or hurtful events or words to soak deep into their soul, allowing such things to internally torment them. Though they live their life so no one else would know this torment, it lives on in their spirit. On the outside, this person can positively impact so many people around him and appear to have such a good support system of friends, yet internally they struggle.

Then one day, this torment gets the better of them, if only for a brief moment, but long enough to illicit an action that will ripple out to all the other souls who loved them. Not just for a brief moment, but for as long as they live. Their action causes an emotional pain that forever scars those who loved this person. As each person tries to make sense of such a senseless act, they come to terms with the event, but such a thing will never be fully understood until we can talk to our loved one in heaven.

Don’t believe that words can never hurt you because words can hurt, even to the point of leading to death from this current earth, but words can also heal. Words can encourage and God’s word can help you put perspective on life. We live in a fallen world, so there is no way around painful circumstances. For our own good mental health, we must hold onto the good in life. We must keep God’s word and promises in our heart as we wait for His return and our reconciliation with our loved ones in that awesome place we call heaven.
