Of all the things you've ever said or heard, most likely half of them are not even memorable. However, everyone has at least one phrase that has been said to them, that to this day has been repeated in their mind over and over. The person who said it may not have thought it was hurtful or significant at the time, and they may not even recall the conversation. But just a few simple words can cut deep scars and effect a person for years to come.
"You don't deserve to live"
"No one could ever love you"
"Don't come crawling back to me when you're fat"
"You'll never make anything of yourself"
"You're the reason your mom and I's relationship is failing"
"You're not important to me and probably never will be"
"You make me feel dirty tbh, you're one of the weakest people I've ever met"
"D*** b****, your teeth are f***** up" ~Before braces in 7th grade

Obviously, there are subjects that can trigger negative emotions in different people. There are a few topics that we know we should avoid. But sometimes the words just seem to slip out when we're angry, hurt, or being ignorant. And they end up causing a greater impact than expected on the person they were directed at. And the people on the receiving end might never admit how much this upset them, keeping it bottled up and eating away at them for the rest of their life. So do what you will with this information, and speak up to someone when they say something hurtful to you.
