Sticks and Stones Stamp by Mirz123 Sticks and Stones Stamp by Mirz123
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.

A bit of a related stamp:

:happybounce: You do NOT need a subscription to use this stamp. Due to dA changes, you can now use it in your journal or ID box, even if you are not a pay-member. Simply cut-and-paste the thumbcode into your journal and you'll post the stamp!!

As with most of my pixel work, you may use this on and off deviantART, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. Also, if you use, let me know as it encourages me to make more free-use art.

I think an episode of Fairly OddParents said it best.

At least broken bones heal within a few months, harsh words can be trapped in your head for years depending on how sensitive your feelings are.

There has always been the word that words hurt more then being hit, which is to true, you can heal completely from a wound, but words will always leave a deep scar. And my heart is like from a war zone.

After having a text fight with my dad's girlfriend last summer, I definitely agree with this. It doesn't hurt me much anymore, it just makes me dislike her a lot, but it DID hurt.

At least internet trolls don't bother me. If anything, they either make me laugh at how stupid they sound or facepalm because what they say isn't true or I didn't understand any of what they're saying. :facepalm:

Words hurt so much. Emotional scars can run far deeper than real physical ones.
