If your ex took pleasure in hurling personal insults at you, like fatty, ginger, skinny, spotty, ugly and so on, it can be surprising how much those tiny words can continue to cause you pain, even once the relationship has ended.
The most devious bullies use very commonly used words to hurt their victims, words that regularly come up in normal conversations and discussions. The legacy of pain from their verbal spears will go on for as long as you allow it to.
Stand up to their vile old behaviour and stamp the pain out by ‘taking possession’ of the very words that were intended to hurt you. Say them, screech them, giggle them over and over and over until they sound as ridiculously stupid as playground insults are and until you cannot hear them without laughing. It’s time you won this round, forever.
