In my chest has a lot of words about "what the people said to me of hurt adjectives" and I can't remove it from my chest. I talk myself are they said that from them chest? or just joke with me? or am I really have these adjectives? However, I try ignore what they said to me. I didn't know do I respond to them or just keep silent and forgive them. Sometime I want to say something but if I say that maybe might forget them.

This makes no sense. What chest? What is a hurt adjective? I suspect you are using some kind of machine translation, and 'chest' and 'hurt' are synonyms of something that makes sense.

The closest I can come to some form of meaning is:

Many people have said hurtful things to me, and these stay in my heart. I ask myself whether they meant them, or were just joking. Am I really as bad as the things they call me? I don't know whether to respond or stay silent and forgive them. Sometimes I want to say something but, if I do say something ... [?]

This after update:

Many people have said hurtful things to me, and these stay in my heart. I ask myself do they meant them from heart them, or were just joking. Am I really as bad as the things they call me? I don't know do I respond or stay silent and forgive them. Sometimes I want to say sharp words but I can't because they did't know me very well. I should be positive not negative and forgive them. This is the right way.

The changes you have made in my suggestion, "Many people have said hurtful things to me, and these stay in my heart. I ask myself whether they meant them, or were just joking. Am I really as bad as the things they call me? I don't know whether to respond or stay silent and forgive them" are changes from correct to incorrect language.

I have question :

Why when I said "In my chest has a lot of words" not sense? or In my heart has a lot of words.
I said that when some feel angry. Is it wrong?

BobK said back in post #2 that these words make no sense. You'll just have to accept that ideas that are expressed in one way in your own language may be expressed in a completely different way in another language. There is no point in asking why.

***NOT A TEACHER***

I would say/use the common idiom "Call names" not …

I mean my friends describe me bad things.

P.S: Please note that I am not saying that your version is not natural. I just want to voice my opinion.


Thank you.

Super computer, note that 'wrote' isn't a noun and neither is 'describe'. The same mistake is in the title of your previous thread: My write from my mind.

I saw what you wrote :you said "You are misusing these words".

Please,I'm here to learn.I have a lot of mistakes,but here my chance to improve my language.
Could you please write the correct words and explain it ?

Yes, see the definition of 'call somebody names': to use impolite or unpleasant words to describe someone.
(call names - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.)

I saw what you wrote :you said "You are misusing these words".

Please,I'm here to learn.I have a lot of mistakes,but here my chance to improve my language.
Could you please write the correct words and explain it ?

'Wrote' is the past tense of 'write'. You could say 'I wrote a piece on the earthquake'. You cannot, however, use 'wrote' as a noun and say 'The wrote...'. You could use the noun 'piece' (or a different noun of course) and say something like 'The piece talks about the earthquake'.

A noun related to the verb 'describe' is 'description'. See here description - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online.
