Daily prompt: Write 500 words on any topic you like. Now remove 250 of them without changing the essence of your post.
The Daily prompt was a hard task master for me today. When I read “write about anything” well I let rip and wrote and wrote. I hit the 500 words mark but then had to take 250 words away from that …quite a task indeed!

People don’t seem to realize how much power words carry. Words are used carelessly and not a thought is given to the person on the receiving end of those words. Words can make us happy, words can make us sad and words can hurt more than anything. I’ve experienced in the past few days how things seem to happen in succession. Words have been said to me from different people on different occasions that I have found so utterly hurtful. I decided not to write about this on my blog because I knew I would be told to grow a thicker skin. I thought I’d be strong but then the final blow, one more bout of nasty words from one I least expected it from.
The WordPress people said write about anything, well, my anything is this really awful heart sore in my stomach. Often the words are mixed up and misunderstood by all and the intention was never meant the way it had come out. Unfortunately sometimes the ears hear something other than what the mouth is saying and often the other way around. I do try to think before I open my mouth.
My heart pains when someone is unduly nasty and unkind. Truly, I get a pain in my chest which I’m assuming is heart pain which in fact is most probably heart ache. I know I’m talking about this sort of thing again but I am so sad and I really couldn’t care less right now.
