The Wonder of Words..

The Wonder of Words..

~ Inspired by
saintlianna's [post 328032]

I was browsing around a bit on the blogs this afternoon and it struck me how much pain and agony is going on.. Rather depressing I'd say..

I wonder why it is that we sometimes choose to give other people's words the power to make or break us..
I wonder why it is that we give other people's words the power to hurt us, the power to humiliate us, the power to anger us..

I wonder why it is that people for so many reasons feel they need to rely on the word of another to feel loved, secure, powerfull, safe, respected..

The words are able to change the way we feel because of the meaning we ourselves give to the words.. A person could say the exact same hurtful thing in Chinese, Hebrew or Greek and just because you can't give meaning to the words they don't hurt you?¿ The person who speaks them, know what they mean, would that not mean that the words say more about the person who speaks them than the person they're directed to?
The words form the other person's opinion, the way HE/SHE feels, hurtful words are never factual and always subjective (as of course are loving words).. Why is it that we choose to grab someone else's opinions and make them ours? Do we like to hurt ourselves?

Words.. I love words.. they make me able to express myself..

Words.. I hate words.. because there are not enough words to be able to express myself..

Words are very very powerful. Unfortunatly their power is felt way too often when they are being used to hurt.

I'm just wondering if words aren't only as powerfull as the power you give to them..

I have to thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Words can be utilized as a weapon, be it to make a bond of love or destruction, the person writing makes that choice. I always believed that the pen is mightier than the sword. If you have noticed in my blog, I quoted my favorite poet "Gibran Khalil" almost everywhere and that's not due to the fact he and I came from the same country but because he makes me think deeply of the word written.

I am glad you visited... maybe your quest of love is coming to an end

Well, in this case it hurt me so much becauce I love the person that said them. A stranger wouldnt havent bothered me half as much. You are so right with what you have wrote here.

~*~ Bessamemucho- *smile*.. reading your blog, it was my pleasure to be a visitor!
How is it that my quest for love might be coming to an end? .. I think I have still a long way to go..

Words can be mightier than the sword if the one they’re spoken to gives them the power of impact.. I keep thinking about this.. and then I thought.. Look at this:

فلسطين الحبيبة كيف أغفو وفي عيني أطياف العذاب

I have no clue what it says here. I copied & pasted this from a guy in my msn.. It could be something very offensive.. It could be something loving.. moving.. magical.. it could be words of hate or words of beauty..
That’s what I mean when I say that the power of the words is given to them by the one who hears/reads them.. To me.. these words don’t have any power at all, because I can’t even understand them.. Another who can, might be moved to tears reading this… So how can it be the words that are painful? Words are just words.. they are nothing more than words until we give them the power to be more..

~*~ Goldmember- Thank you.. .. and yes they can.. So much unnecessary pain is going on in the world due to words and how people are affected by them..

~*~ Saintlianna- Wether its a person you love, one that loves your or Someone you hate or one that hates you.. it's still your power that you give to those words.. I know as anyone that words can be painful and make you cry.. as much as only a look can as well.. But the one thing you have to keep in mind, is that all words Always only have the power you give to them..
If it is a person you love that tells you words that hurt you, you have to wonder why it is that they hurt you.. Is it because the one who spoke them has a different view on things than you would like him to have? Is it the actual words that hurt you? Or YOUR disappointment subconciously realizing that that person you love doesnt view things the way you do/you'd want them to?

Or am I going way too deep here?

~*~ Macker- “I often think it's not really the words that hurt us but or own low self esteem. After all if you're comfortable in yourself there is little that any one can say to hurt you;”Yes!! That is exactly what I was trying to make clear.. and the words can be untrue in your eyes, but they can be very true from the point of view of the person who said them..

But I don’t quite understand what you’re saying about the truth.. How can the truth be painful? It can be harsh yes.. but if it is the truth, why would it be painful? Could you give me an example?
