every little word has an impact. even if you think it’s going to do no harm. or you think you’re doing good for them. or well, you just aren’t thinking. even something very small can cause a huge damage. people who’ve read thirteen reasons why by jay asher will understand this very well. everything takes a toll on the person. and the supposedly small thing you said might just be the thing to push them off the edge. we all have read those posts like, “never call a girl fat you never know what she might do to be the the opposite,” what i want you to understand is that words hurt. they hurt a lot. and even if you think that they won’t hurt, just think, maybe it would be better for you to not say it at all. why would you want to hurt someone on purpose? the thing is, at times, people can be so selfish that they complete forget to think about the other person. we never try to think what the person might feel, or how the other person’s life is. this can also be classified as verbal bullying. which can be correlated to wanting power.
I’ve read as well as seen many scenarios in which a person verbally bullies someone to feel power, to feel superior. which obviously isn’t how it should be. as many times as i’ve said it, I’m going to say it again, everyone is equal. everyone should be treated as an equal.
and somehow whenever i think of equality, the line from animal farm by George Orwell, comes to mind, “all animals are equal but some animals are more equal that others.” (I still have to read this book, though, its my friend that told me this quote. But still.)
but this is what bugs me a lot, you know, how no one is treated equally. there is so much discrimination. the thing is that we need to try to know the other side of the story, we just judge them and assume things. everyone has their own story, you have no right to judge them. and even though, we all say this thing again and again but we just never act on it.
and some people just treat others like it doesnt matter what you say to them like they have no feelings. I’m not trying to make those people look like the bad guy here because well, no one is actually bad; just misguided. but you cannot think for even one moment that the other person is heartless as much as they pretend to be.
while they do say that actions speak louder than words, its words at times that cause bigger damage than actions could ever do. actions will leave scars which will be healed, but the damage that words will cause will never actually heal.
just think about this, okay? thankyou.
(i know that at times all my words and writings seem very immature and very raw but I’m trying, and i still have a lot to learn. and i am just an amateur, so bear with me please.)
