sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words will never hurt me.

Those words dont hurt, but the intent behind them often does. The betrayal of unspoken trust.

Those words will stick around for some time. Too bad.

Time to find a way so that these issues do not recur. Tough to do so being in a weakened position.

No point thinking too much about them. Need to move on and follow through with the plan.

Just In the end, it’s just collateral damage.
