5.0 out of 5 stars  Words can wound severely and permanently

By Luke Joseph Menkes on June 3, 2018

Format: Paperback

A very moving and powerful story, one that sheds light on the absolute personal devastation caused by depression. Here is one passage that stood out to me in particular: “Forget the old adage “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Whoever wrote that was either deaf or a psychopath, because bones heal, but hurtful words imprint themselves on the brain like an acid tattoo!” SO TRUE! If you or have suffered or are currently suffering from depression, or if someone you care about has, then you should buy this book.
