This is a stamp I have been wanting to make for months, but wasn't really sure how to emotize it. Anyhow, I think it gets the point clear.
I don't believe we should be chained emotionally to what people think or say about us. However, the truth of the matter is that words CAN hurt. They can destroy someone's self-esteem, wound them deeply, particularly if the person saying the words is important to you. That is why there is something called verbal abuse and non-physical bullying.
Anyhow, I know I am way over-sensitive, but it really is hard to hear sometimes, "oh, just suck it up and get over it." It really isn't that easy sometimes.
So, remember, before you say something mean to someone online (and IRL), remember there is another person on the other side of the computer screen who has feelings, too.
