Founded in 2013, the Words Hurt campaign brings awareness of Bullying. Gay, Straight, Bi, Transgender, Black, White, Old, Young, it makes no difference who you are, where you come from, or what you stand for, Words Hurt EVERYONE. You can be bullied physically, in Cyberspace, or even rumors can be spread about you, but the words that are said to you are what hurts you the most. Bruises fade, notes will be torn up, social media status will be lost in the news feeds, but words that are being said to or about you stay with you and hurt worse than anything.
You just never know what people are going through, what is going on in their mind, what statement or phrase will send them over the edge. You don’t know their life story, their struggles, their weakness, and their demons. Your words to them that day could very well be the ones that send them into a violent rage, or worse to cause them to do something harmful to themselves or other people. Bullying has been the culprit of countless mental health issues that can lead to anxiety, depression, psychological issue and in some extreme cases, suicidal thoughts and actions.
That’s what this campaign is all about. Sending out the message that what you say DOES affect someone. Though the bruises and wounds cannot be seen on the outside, there are marks on that person’s mind and heart that will stick with them for years to come. Our motto is #AllLoveNoHate, hashtagged to start a trend on social media so that everyone worldwide can join in the campaign to stop using hurtful words to put people down and start using words of love to encourage and uplift.
