Words Can Be Destructive

Can anyone relate to this? I was quite often told for most of my life that...

One. I've achieved nothing in my life.

Two. I've accomplished nothing in my life.

And three. I've amounted to nothing in life.

True story.


I knew not how destructive those words were.

It came from those who I am supposed to be able to count on most in my life.

I was not once told from them, "I am proud of you." Not once. And as weird as it may sound, I feel super weird today when people write me or tell me offline, "I am proud of you."

I was so conditioned to believe that whatever I did in life was not good enough that to this day, I don't understand why it feels super awkward when someone tells me, "I'm proud of you." Sometimes I think to myself, is he or she insulting or disrespecting me? It's an awkward feeling that I've wrestled with.

It caught up to me.

It was so destructive.

It tormented me.

Then it hit me, no matter what I did, it would never be good enough to even those who mattered, even though that was what hurt the most. It seems as though they do not want me healthy. They do not want me thriving. They do not want me happy.

But I later learned that GOD's words matter so much more than their words. The Holy Spirit then edified me in ways no man could. Jesus the Son healed and delivered me of torment, trauma, and pain.

If it were not for my faith in GOD, I am certain I would not be alive.

I am grateful that GOD exposed the lies, unraveled the truth.

GOD is ALMIGHTY!

    Can I relate to this? Yes I can! The words “not good enough” was something I carried most of my childhood. As a child, you tend to believe it. As I got older and began my new life in Jesus, His word taught me that those words “not good enough” were lies from the enemy. I no longer believe in the lies of the enemy because my God loves me, has a plan and a purpose for my life. I am a child of God. As believers we have been set free from the lies of the enemy. In Proverbs 15:4 it says, “Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit”. May God’s word be your strength for today and your hope for tomorrow.

    Yes I do relate. I’ve worked so hard in spite of my disabilities, left multiple abusive ex’s, ran across states from one with blisters for a year, grew up without parents since I was 5, the odds were always against me.. I grew up knowing not to wish for the best because I’d always get the worst.. if I didn’t want to be with my mother in heaven I wouldn’t have been here a long time ago.. however one night I remember when I was around 17 yrs old clearly asking the lord to please give me a sign that life after death exists at exactly midnight... (I lived in a strict house with ocd guardians) and the closet door in the hall near my room opened up and dropped stuff on the ground... (we always make sure that the closet is pressed to click and never overloaded) I covered myself in my covers and said I believe!!... and so years and years of therapy have never healed me quite as much as the lords words... I live with ptsd from losing my best friend when I was homeless during my run away period... I’ve also got dyscalculia, gas and can’t drive because of my schizoaffective, so I feel very depressed.. I’m on and off intro and extrovert, and even when I see people I know outside or on the bus but I struggle with my insecurities.. I’ve made my small goals come true, visited multiple states and countries.. left bad people with nothing but faith and enough for just one ways.. because I know HE will take care of me. Right now I’m struggling with letting go of people whom I’ve burned bridges with because of their abuse.. my empathy makes me cry a lot because I’m so used to pain I don’t want others to feel the same, thus I barely speak out when someone hurts me... I ask the lord to give me the strength to let go of the pain and help me speak up... people often think I’m scary by my appearance but I’m actually really tender hearted. I was given kindness through pain and I’m still figuring out why he made me this way, but I know he did it for a reason. I think Jason was the one who prayed with a woman for me when I had to get a cat scan for a possible brain tumor about two or three years ago.. and it turned out to be symptoms of my medication and all I had to do was stop it. The lord takes care of those who believe. It takes time. I see Jason at bus stops sometimes and just smile while listening to music because I know he’s doing wonderful things. you may not always get it in person but it’s in spirit, please remember this.

    Words can hurt. People intentionally try to dragg other people after them when they are not good enough to do something, they try to destroy others around them. These kind of people are weak. The strong people are those who ignore everything what those bad people says about them. No matter what people talks about you, keep doing what you love, spread the love, spread the passion, spread the music and be confident in everything you do. I am really proud of you !

    Hey jason❤ I can totally relate through my personal life n school life n life in general. In school especially in high school I had a hard time learning because i had a disability with my eyes no one knew about. I had ppl tell me..why is it so hard for u to get? Do u understand what I'm saying? I had to use other ways to learn and that's why i have a very humble bubbly personality n super positive outlook in any situation, through god n my parents giving me words of confidence n pushing me n showing me my worth in this world I probably give up. Through some of my ex bfs who was verbally abusive/physically abusive, I felt I couldnt stand on my own for years or I needed someone to make me feel loved or I'll be alone. I been single for couple years now n feel better than ever n knowing I can stand on my own n emotionally stronger than ever. Everything happens for a reason bad n good. But with faith, humbleness, god, n ppl who stand by you anything is possible. Your a great guy jason. Remember that. I genuinely kno your a amazing soul, person and bring alot of happiness in this world regardless if u think its awkward hearing this. Your worth it. Your amazing. Have a lot to offer in this world. Keep going strong. I stand behind you all the way. Let's enjoy life❤❤❤❤

    Yes words make a difference to most people. Word's can affect people and those who hear it. Words are as I see it, just words. As I see it, care for those who say it if that person matters to you. Care not, when you don't know those whom say what they can because of freedom of speech. Help those whom want advice and ignore those whom seek the wrong attention. Show compassion and love when needed. Don't waste your energy on those who will bring you down and expend the energy of words to people whom matter to you. Peace out and smile.
