Not all words being spat out to you are venom.
They can only harm you if you perceive it so.
Sometimes the venom that you perceive and spit back out,
is also a venom for the person in front of you.
Sometimes you have to swallow your own words,
open your ears,
and start to listen. Properly.
Because right now you are doing nothing but eating your own words.
These words are not venom.
