"I am awed by words for the same reason I am terrified of them - their POWER.
They can either fill you with life or empty you to death."
- Wanted Poet
No words have ever been more true. We take for granted how much impact words can and do have on our lives. "You're stupid," "loser!" "freak," "you're useless," "you're untalented," "I hate you," "you'll never amount to anything." Even negative self-talk like "I'm so ugly," "I'm so stupid," "I'm fat," "I'm not good enough." Negative, berating, and insulting words can lead people to depression, psychotic breaks, and a lot of times suicide (as we've seen in many publicized cases of high school bullying). This world is hard enough as it is, let's focus on uplifting one another positively with words instead of tearing each other down with them.
