Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. That’s what they used to tell us to say when we were younger, so that our adversaries understood that they could say whatever they wanted and we wouldn’t be affected. But it was a crock of crap right? The reality is, those words did hurt. And though it may be different than being pelted with sticks and stones, those words can cut deep and stick with us well beyond those years. That is why it’s very important that when it comes to our significant others, we learn that what we say to one another matters.
