Hurtful Words

Posted by admin April 7th, 2013

By now, all have claimed the acrid voice of one whom so callously attacks another with demeaning words or insults. Many choose to defend themselves. Others look away, afraid to face the attacker. Others choose to walk away, to not lower themselves to their level of immaturity. They certainly hurt in the beginning, but time heals most mental wounds.  Many times, if not all times, we get caught off guard when someone, for their own reasons, desires to hurt another. This world is tough and we must deal with these circumstances as best we can. We must remember that these people have insecurities of their own and feel that the person they want to hurt is better than them in some way. That may be true, or it may not be true. Integrity is key.

My father imparted helpful words when dealing with such people: ‘coping with others is like caring for a sword, day after day it must see diligent sharpening and persistent polishing.’ ” –Satchel & Sword I. The Search for the Saluka Stone.

    Hurtful words is only for people that have nothing else to say or do, it means ignorance. I learned to ignore hurtful words and the people with big mouths and poor minds.
