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

 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.
 Quoting: Rising Son

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.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20208959

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.
 Quoting: Rising Son

WRONG AGAIN. It does not matter if a person is 2 or 102. They can be hurt with WORDS whether they are true or not. Just the fact that someone said them,hurts. I wonder how many men or women are sitting in a bar right now somewhere in the world replaying some unkind remarks their ex said about them. Maybe he or she told them they were ugly and worthless and unlovable....and they started to believe it whether any of it was true or not, and an alchoholic was born. Believing lies, people do it at all ages,all the time. WORDS HURT.

I'LL say it again, WORDS CAN BRUISE THE HEART AND SCAR THE SOUL. and it can be anybody you are destroying a little piece at a time with unkindness.

You can destroy people with wordsand their age does not matter one wit.
