There are always going to be the annoying individuals who run their mouth too much. These people tend to be universally disliked by everyone, and is most likely to get beat down. In fact, one can say a beat down is warranted for many of these people.
The saying that sticks and stones can break bones etc. is just coping for the fact that sometimes words can cut far deeper than any sticks or stones. Physical wounds can heal, but psychology trauma does not heal that way. Sometimes it’s best to learn to shut one’s mouth or face the consequences.
