Can hurt like hell.
I appreciate honesty.
After what I've been through and experienced, I live for truth.
I want honesty and I want to give honesty back.
But what if the words from honesty and truth hurt?
Today words were exchanged between myself and someone else,
While I appreciated their honest words,
The words stung a bit.
They hurt my heart.
Part of me understood where they were coming from and what they meant.
But their words hurt.
Then I said words,
Instead of taking the high road I stooped to their level.
I did apologize.
I never want to be responsible for anyone elses hurt or pain.
I'm 28 and I'm extremely sensitive.
I've been broken down in the worst ways.
I do still stand.
Unsteady at times, but I do stand.
I want to be treated and treat others with respect and honesty.
I want to love, appreciate, give, cherish.
Words can hurt at any age.
Today I felt like a little kid on the playground.
Then I thought of my sweet girl and the future.
I want her to be strong. I never want her to hurt from other's words.
I definitely don't want her words to hurt others.
I can't protect her from words, I can't even protect myself.
But I can teach by example.
I can live to be the example.
How do you handle words that hurt?
