We all know however that the quote "sticks and stones may
break my bones but words can never hurt me" is completely untrue.
IISome of the worst pain we have all suffered has come from words used cruelly - from ego-destroying criticism, excessive anger, sarcasm, public and private humiliation, hurtful nicknames, betrayal of secrets, rumors, and malicious gossip. Yet wounded, many of us can knowingly or unknowingly do this to others as well.
