There is an old saying ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me,’ I’ve never agreed with that as there are some words which can do more damage than any bone break ever would. However, tonight I discovered another reason to disbelieve it.
Tonight, I finished a story for my memoir, a story which I found difficult to find the words for and having found them, those words hurt. Usually, when I finish writing something, I feel relief and satisfaction. However, tonight I did not feel like celebrating.
Thankfully, tomorrow is another day and I feel a more light-hearted story calling!
