I do not agree that words never hurt because they can hurt your feelings. For example, if someone tells you that you are ugly, that can hurt your feelings. Also, if someone is spreding rumors or talking behid you back, it can hurt. Or if they are being racist or insulting you or excluding you or a billion other things that are verbal can hurt. NO WAY DO I AGREE WITH THIS SAYING. I think it is (i dont know if im allowed to say this) STUPID.
I absolutely 100% DO NOT AGREE! Words can kill you. They can be abusive, hurtful, mean, upsetting, tragic, rude, and deadly. People have said horrible things to me and I've said some. I know how it feels to be completely put down by words and to not want to have anything to do with anyone or anything. You just want to slink away into the corner and not speak, to be alone. People have said things I can't repeat about my friends and loved ones and it hurts me. I cry and it's not pretty. Thinking about how hurt I get by the words when they aren't directly towards me and how upset I get, think about how upset I get when they are said directly at me or about me. You think they are your friend and then they go behind you back and say unbelievably horrible things, then they apologize and pretend it never happened. But words hurt, you can forgive but you don't forget. They've left a permanent mark because words, words hurt.
Well, honestly I dont care what people say about me if it's in a negative way. To me it's just another way for me to gain power over people. And like most people say haters are gonna hate it's nothing new to me.
I disagree because people say really mean things about people and then they remember what they said and it gets to there head and they feel sad or mad. Some kids have said mean things to me and most of the time it bothers me mentally and I remember that and I feel bad. I think that if we don't have anything nice to say then don't say it because most of the time it affends someone not nessiseily the person you are making fun of but other people around you. Now im saying that some people have killed themselves because of what they say so but I say who cares for what they think because then they are not your friend if they make fun of you so just try to block out what they say or you don't say something that might affened someone because it will hurt them mentally and you don't know what they will do. So just try not to say something that would hurt something.
Yes i do think words can hurt.I think words can hurt because some people can be really offended by them.For example if someone says you stink you have two choices be sad or give the person the cold shoulder.Some people are really offended by some words based on their religion or race and even cry or get mad about it.this is how i think words can offend people.
No, I deffinatley do not agree with those words because there are many words that can hurt your feelings. About today and Sterling's whole racist jokes and word about Kobe. The n word is very offensive to african american's because that is what you were called if you were a slave back then. Also it is used between them now as sort of a joke but not really. Sticks and stones can very much hurt your bones and words can damage your heart and soul for life. I would like this blog to be private. Also words can hurt other people to when it is used against their friend. When your friend gets hurt you can feel the pain too.
I do not really agree with that because for one words are more powerful that objects. I think that because Objects can hurt on the outside but words go right to the inside. One other thing is that I read something and it said to whoever wrout that quote "have they ever been hit with a dictionary?" i though that was funny! ;)
@ that i how i sign things know
No, I do not agree that words will never hurt. I say this because when somebody jokingly calls you a name, nobody really will care, but if it isn`t a joke, words can leave deep emotional scars, even if you have a good self-estiem. Iknow this first-hand because my brother had a teacher who was a full- on meanine, and he said horrable things to him and even though he normaly dosen`t care about those things, it really made him feel very hurt and sad. So "sicks and stones will break my bones", and that can be just as hurtful as words.
I kind of don't agree with that. The reason is that words sometimes hurt and sticks and stones may not break my bones but together a group of them would break your bones. It is called stoning. That is what I think. -Jonny
I think that words can be used to hurt people for many reasons. First of all I myself had an incident where I said an unpleasant thing about another classmate. I am very sorry about what I said because it was a very hurtful thing to say. I also think this because in the past I have also been hurt by words. That is why I think words can be used to hurt people.
I don't agree that the saying "Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me" is true. Words can sometimes hurt you more than sticks and stones. Words can hurt you a lot.
Oh, this is interesting, i think it is the other way around. If you are strong willed you can can take take physical beating. On the other hand say someone made fun of how you dress, you could feel awful forever. It's not right to point out differences in a nasty way. This is what I have to say.
I have heard the quote many times and i dont agree. Even though someone may seem really tough on the outside on the inside the words you just sound may have "killed" them. I dont agree with this quote because more times then not people will be sensitive to what you say. Words can hurt many including myself sometimes but not for all i dont agree with this qoute but some people may.
i totally disagree. Words hurt more than any wound. that is simply because wounds heal but words can stick with you forever. I've broken many bones and have been injured MANY times but, that didnt hurt half as bad as when someone came up to me and said straight to my face that no one liked me and i would never have any friends. After that day i never stopped thinking about it...it whirled around in my head all day. Actually it made me so upset that that day i couldnt focus at gymnastics and broke my hand, but i didnt even shed a tear, mean while i cried for hours over what that girl said.
I think that words can hurt people much more than sticks and stones could. Just one false word or sentence could end a relationship, friend ship, or any kind of bonding. I know that one of my very close friends ruined an important relationship by saying ONE sentence that shoudnt have been said. It ruined alot of her life. That is why I think that sticks and stones arent as bad as words AT ALL
I think words can't hurt you physically but they can hurt you emotionally. An example of this is when someone is calling someone else names, the aren't physically hurting them with words since words don't have any solid substance but they are hurting them emotionally by hurting their feelings. That is the reason why I think words can hurt.
I think some people can be hurt by words, but there is so many other things words can be used for.
When I was little there was a kid who was really mean to me and I didn't want to go to school but then he moved away to some foreign country and I was REALLY HAPPY!!!!
Well, I do think that words can hurt someone. You may not mean to say it, it may just slip out, but they can still hurt someone. If you call someone a name, which I have and I have learned the hard way, which is basicaly calling someone a name. I got in trouble because i hurt the persons feelings. Now i am trying to stop calling people names. I stopped for another reason. This was in second grade, and I learned that was bullying. I learned that I could be arrested. Well, I learned that from the police officer this year when we had the bullying assembley. I think from my reasons it can prove that words can hurt somebody.
I think that that statement is false to the maximum the main words that hurt me are not the best things to be putting on a school based blog but one is stupid retard failure. Those really hurt me.
I think that that phrase is definetly not true for everyone. sometimes people say things that make the person on the recieving end of things very upset and/or angry. If you say things like 'you're absolutely useless!' to someone else, then you might forget about it, but they might not. It could haunt them for a looooong time and make them eventually believe what you told them. Long story short, a few mean words can ruin someone's life.(so sorry I'm late Mr.B, but at least I did it eventually:)
I believe words can hurt even MORE than physical attacks. Physical attacks may break you on the outside, but never on the inside. With words, however, they can take away your pride and hurt your feelings. I think the best thing to do if someone is insulting you is just to ignore them and not care, because its their opinion, although you might think its the truth, its really not.
