    How Do You Feel About Cussing?

    Do you cuss that much? Do you feel relief when you cuss?

    Re: How Do You Feel About Cussing?

    Hi Eddie,

    On a day-to-day basis I would say no. I can communicate and make arguments if need be without the use of cuss words. I don't think anyone sounds "cool" when they are cussing, myself included. I also don't think it is appropriate or necessary in many situations. That being said, in casual conversation with close friends, if I am annoyed by something or mad and just need to vent to someone, I have become well acquainted with the f-bomb, and a few other letters. It's not anything I plan on, but it just kinda comes out. I don't think the use of any particular cuss words gives me relief as much as just being able to vent to someone.

    Hey,

    Hope things are going well with you, Eddie. I grew up not cursing as a sign of respect, but through college it became the norm. Despite not always being appropriate, I do curse at home.

    It's definitely influenced by who I'm talking to, but it's a habit I'd like to kick. Even as I'm cursing, I ask myself why I choose the words I do. It's such a habit now, that it will be a hard one to get rid of.

    Hey Eddie! Good Thursday to You!

    I absolutely say cuss words only around my friends and to be honest it's not a good thing. There really isn't a reason for it. My parents on the other hand cuss only when they're pissed off at my brother's and I for not doing something or doing something we weren't suppose to do. My mom HATES to cuss, but she said it seems like the only time we take her seriously is when she goes there. Damn shame...LOL!!!

    Have a blessed day!

    Hey Eddie!

    Cussing doesn't really come naturally to me, but I guess I do it when I'm frustrated. In some form I do feel relief, because usually when I'm cussing, I'm usually yelling; it's a way to release my emotions!

    Hi Eddie,

    I cuss a lot! I would make a sailor blush it's so bad. It's not that I cuss when I'm upset or anything, it's just part of my everyday vocabulary...which is a problem now because my boyfriend's family HATES cussing. So now I have to train myself to speak like a normal person...and I have three days. Wish me luck!

    I personally don't like swearing because I believe that it's harsh language that is unnecessary. I think too many people use it excessively and I find it really unintelligent and annoying. There are so many words in the English language that express your feelings! And I feel that it is important to use them. That being said, I do believe that well-placed swear word is all right and useful. I will feel relieved if I use it in a scenario in which I am really angry or if I stubbed my toe on something. We attach emotions to words and if we use a swear word that has a lot of emotion then we will release that emotion quicker. For the most part though I hate hearing swear words and I find it to be really not classy at all. I was raised in a household where swearing is considered disrespectful in trouble for saying things like "darn" or "crap" because they implied certain swear words and therefore they were the same thing as a swear word. Now I don't personally agree with this anymore but that is just the level to which I was raised

    Hello,

    I rarely cuss. No one in my house uses curse words on a daily basis. I was just always taught that it was wrong. I have said a curse word in anger but it rarely happens.

    Re: How Do You Feel About Cussing?

    Yeah, that would be me. But I think with me, it depends who I'm talking to. No, I'm lying, lol. As I think about it I pretty much do the deed a lot of the time. It's because, cussing, cursing or profanity... it breathes emphasis on whatever it is you're trying to say. For example. Would you rather hear someone talking about you like this "that Eddie Hyatt is so handsome, omg" or "that Eddie Hyatt is so **BLEEEPing" handsome, omg"? Which one makes you smile more? Which one means more? I'm just saying, it makes more emphasis on whatever it is you're trying to say.

    Hey Eddie,

    I do cuss a lot, although I am trying to cut back! I'm notorious for dropping the F-bomb. But I do feel like it's an appropriate adjective most of the time :)

    Thanks for the post and have a good day!

    Good morning!

    When I was growing up, my parents did not want us cursing, especially in their home. But now that I'm older I find that is just naturally slips. I view it like this : it's literally only a word.

    I don't curse around kids or in a professional setting in a meeting or what not, but I feel it's a completely normal thing to do.
