My entry for the #Awesme Tutorials 'Best Advice You Were Ever Given' #Contest

One of the best pieces of advice I was given as a kid was, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me." I didn't realize the truth of this until I was much older, because those names certainly did seem to hurt. It was well after I matured before realizing that it was me who allowed those words to hurt me. The words themselves only have the power I give them.

After becoming an adult the strength of this saying only became stronger and stronger. This is because before graduating from High School, where you are forced to be around the same kids everyday, there seems to be no escape. As an adult I realized that not only could I chose to or not to work around people like that, but I could also chose who I wanted in my life. It was then that I decided being popular and fitting in wasn't in my best interest and that letting people go made me so much happier.

Words never hurt me again, because I realized the opinions of others don't matter and never did. It seems today that this powerful piece of advice has been corrupted and now society is filled with a new generation who thinks words are weapons and the decay of our society because of it is very noticeable.
