As children we are taught the nursery rhyme sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never harm. I often questioned the teachers thinking because some words cut deeper than a stab wound.
Words are just as hurtful as sticks or stones being thrown at you or someone else. It messes up with your mental health when it comes from a person that means a lot to you.
When someone is going through a rough day or under the influence they might say the truth and sometimes that hurts because you didn’t ask for it. When I was younger, I struggled with hurtful words towards me. I was sensitive and sometimes I still am. Life will trigger issues in your past that you’re going through right now. I can definitely relate to Rod Wave’s song, Heart On Ice, one line says he wears his heart on his sleeves.
We are taught to be strong individuals no matter what the circumstances to push through the cycles of life. Life knocks you down and it’s hard to get back up sometimes.
Every one is not living the same life as you. You may have went through struggles but next person has to. My obstacles maybe a lot different than your obstacles, no matter how someone is raised. You haven’t been no one shoes but your own.
In the movie, Sing (2016), one of the most powerful songs by Elton John, “I’m Still Standing” basically interprets through it all, I’m still here and doing good regardless what maybe happening in life.
I’m here to tell you today that trouble doesn’t last always, joy comes in the morning. You are not wrong to feel sad in situations that cause you harm , you’re human that is your natural response. With life, you will get through different circumstances and people bud just remember take it one day at a time. There is always a light at the end of your tunnel and better days are on the way!
