Words hurt.

I was reminded by one of the main course points of a personality course I took last January 2008; the teacher said that for the 9 positive comments we receive and only one insult, we tend to remember the sole insult! True enough, negative comments or hurtful words leave a sting to our subconscious.

According to a new study, “memories of painful emotional experiences linger far longer than those involving physical pain.”
