“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” While this is a catchy saying, sometimes words have more power than we realize and can be really hurtful. But on the other hand, nice words can have an opposite and maybe an even greater effect.
“When words are both true and kind, they can change the world.” -Buddha
The other saying about the power of words is “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” and maybe that is the better saying. True and kind words are much more helpful and powerful than mean words are. And this applies to not just spoken word, but what you send in a text message or posted online. We try our best to not give words any power when they hurt, but like Buddha said, true and kind words can really change the world if we all start using them.
