Words

Words can’t hurt until we add meaning and allow them to.

When we are sleeping, whatever is said to us can’t hurt because no permission is given (we are asleep).
When ‘hurtful’ words are said to us in a language we don’t understand, they mean nothing unless we impose our own guesses.

Words are just symbols and sounds.
So how do words cause us to inflict suffering upon ourselves?
