Message Subject Why are some people so hostile here on GLP?
Poster Handle Rising Son
Post Content
OP - they are just unhappy people who want everyone else to be as unhappy as they are. Many of them mistake any difference of opinion as hostility, and many of them are bitter after having been hurt by other mean people. Hostility begets hostility - the best way to confront it is to show that it has no power over you, because it really doesn't. People can be as vile and disrespectful as they want to be, but at the end of the day, they're just words. When you allow them to bother you, you give those words power, and the pain you experience changes you into what caused that pain.

Bolded... NO ! Words have power in and of themselves. You do not give them power, they already have it.

WORDS HAVE GREAT POWER.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20444923


Wrong - if words do not contain truth or are not manifested in truth, then they are just words. If the words do contain truth and they hurt, then the problem lies with the one who is hurt by the truth. The OP was talking about hostile words that are unwarranted, hence they contain no truth or legitimacy.

Wrong. Whether words are true or not,they have enormous power. Words can bruise the heart and scar the soul...forever.

A father could tell his little daughter WORDS like "you are an ugly little girl and even if she is beautiful the damage has been done. The heart is bruised and the soul is scarred.

There are billions of people walking around this earth today STILL and FOREVER in pain because of something said to them by someone they loved that was not true, but they believed it. Words hurt forever in many cases and even shape the people we become.

WORDS HAVE ENORMOUS POWER, TRUE OR NOT.

Again, the words do not possess the power unless you give it to them. Your father-daughter example only demonstrates that children are especially vulnerable because they have not reached maturity, and they do not have the capability or experience to consider the source of those words.

However, adults should know better than to blindly follow and believe everything they are told. If an adult gives credibility to something they are told or read without verifying the source, they leave themselves vulnerable to becoming hurt. This is an essential aspect of maturity that allows adults to navigate through what is true or false, what is good or bad, and what is love or hate.
