Can Your Words Hurt You?


Please (oh please) allow me to disagree with this lady who is asking us all to be not ourselves in writing or in person. Your words are yours, the very essence of you and if you can’t own or protect things that came out of you (in shape of words), then what are you worth of except being someone who carries doublespeak inside themeselves? All these masks people wear all around us are actually what should be damned in the words you described someone’s honest or raw words. If you are a bitch, wear it proudly on your forehead. And the same applies on ass-holes too. My 2 cents please 🙂

Yes. I am sure of it. Why am I so sure? Well, things you say in public forums, such as Facebook groups and pages, Twitter, etc., can be read by anyone. “Anyone” includes potential employers, people doing background checks, etc.

I now commence to lecture people who probably won’t read this. Bear with me. It will make me feel better, and hey, it’s my forum.

    1. There are consequences for not being ourselves. For being yourself, I assure you of all sorts of heavens lying in front of you. A job or community can easily go to hell if all their requirement is to be shallow, hideous, and a fake individual like the one you were professing. Thanks for understanding my point of view while calling me all sort of names i.e. an ass-hole, a jerk and what not. You are free to be a bitch too just like many around us already 🙂 HAIL THE HITLER…. lols
