Why do words from other people sometimes hurt us?

A dictionary defined emotion as a state of mind wherein it is derived from circumstances, situations, mood, and the way we relate to others. Thinking is a process wherein a person is using his/her mind in reasoning about a certain situation. Our emotion uses our heart and our thinking uses our brain. Our brain is responsible for creating those emotions that we feel. That’s why it’s important to control our minds to avoid being hurt.

It’s not the spoken word that hurt us, it’s the way we think and act that make us hurt!

The reality is that if somebody wants to see you as a good person, they will see you as good. But, if they want to see you as a bad person, they will see you as bad. You can’t stop them, even though you interrogate them because it’s their way of thinking. It’s in their mind, you can’t change it unless they will. So, the right thing that you must do is to just be yourself. Accept the things that you can’t control.

Stop worrying about what other people might be thinking of you. Furthermore, stop being stressed about how they make you feel.

Because even if you try to show them your good intentions, the more reasons that they will hold on to their attitude and make you feel down. They know that they are holding that part of you that will always care about what they would say or do. Learn to accept that you can’t change someone else views, thoughts, and actions because it’s theirs.

In conclusion, why do words from other people sometimes hurt us? It’s because we think and feel it. But how we control our minds and the way we respond to our emotions is the one we need to look deeper with. It’s either we will be hurt, or it will just pass, depending on how you deal with it. Accept their words and actions, don’t take them too seriously so that you wouldn’t formulate unnecessary ideas that could hurt your feelings.
