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.

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.

So you tell me what is worse: believing lies that hurt or believing lies that protect feelings? Didn't your parents ever tell you the sticks and stones rhyme? If words hurt you and they scar you, it is because you let them.

No. Read up on psychology, the psychology involved in neuro-linguistic programming, and I rest my case.

What kind of person would argue FOR being unkind to people, or try to excuse it in any way, shape, or form ? Most people will be kind if you are kind to them.Most people I meet are very kind.Some are full of grace.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20208959

Oh, I see - your a psych major. Got it. It is people like you who are the reason why there are so many oversensitive and weak-willed individuals walking around getting emotionally hurt. I am not arguing for unkindness to anyone, I am simply saying that if you allow words to hurt you, you may need to partake in a skin-thickening exercise.
