    "Sticks and Stones may break my bones but Words can never hurt me."

    Discuss this statement, I think it's an utter lie and it should be the other way around. Few years back, a cousin of mine scared me pretty bad, and It's still not gone, albiet my active imagination and refusal to just relax probably don't help it at all. Anyway discuss

    It's not really a saying. More of a mantra for people so they can get over the pain of what people say. That's my take.

    Words never mean as much until they're projected towards you. Then you feel their bitter sting.

    I guess. Then again this probably isn't the right saying for this, although I would say Fear is one of the worst emotions if you can't control it at all. If you have a fear of spiders, you stay away from spiders. I have a fear of the unknown, how in the holiest of hecks am I supposed to stop that? It's annoying ._. tbh I needed some advice.

    I hate this saying so. f******. much. I have the mentality of an eight year old, so words can hurt me pretty easily. This saying is a lie because words can cut deep into your heart and make you cry.

    I have done that a few times, tbh.

    I think in some cases, i would prefer the broken bones than the the words.

    Just a way for kids to try and go up strong, giving them reasons to be strong, and more rapable.

    Actions speak louder than words, but words hurt more than actions.
