It means the wound by a knife can be healed but a wound caused by words does not recover easily.


In today’s modern world we live in is a new world is so-called social media. We post photos, videos, comments, etc. to our social handles (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, etc.) However, sometimes we receive negative comments on the content we post that hurts. Also, the abuse in social media platforms is common. We know words hurt a lot in social media or in the real world where we live in—sometimes bad words thrown by our love one's father, mother bother or friends that won’t heal quickly.

I know words mean a lot to us but my piece of advice to you is “do not divert yourself from your goal by these words.
