“Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Really? Whoever says that has never been bullied. A few years ago, a study conducted by research psychologists at Purdue University, Indiana, found that memories of painful emotional experiences linger far longer than those involving physical pain. The researchers quizzed people about painful events in the previous five years and found that it was much easier for people to relive, re-experience, and re-suffer from social pain than from physical pain. So what do we do when words have wounded us? We turn to the healing Word of God as the Psalmist did in Psalm 12.
