I'm running a talk for my school (long story) and I was wondering if anyone could help me provide real-life examples of someone making a small comment that has stuck with you, whether positively or negatively, for a long time. the comment could have been just someone teasing you, a passing compliment, or just someone saying something but for whatever reason, it has stuck with you or impacted your life significantly.
An example of a negative one, is one time I was just singing and a girl I don't know very well said "geez Chris, you're so tone deaf" (and at that time, I was considering choosing being a vocalist after i graduated high school). Minor comment, but stuck with me.
I'm trying to show the impact of simple words and how much they can affect people. If anyone has a few stories they wouldn't mind sharing, I'd appreciate it!
And for those who don't know me, hi I'm Boggart
