I have to admit, the first week was the easiest. I thought to myself, “Okay, I will be around conservative people for five months, I have been around my baby cousins for longer. I can do this!” And though I have succeeded so far, it has been one of the hardest challenge’s I have done yet.
For the last 3 years, I have made profanities a valuable part of my language. I used them everyday, in almost every sentence. I used various swear words as “filler words” when I was stumped. I used some of them to describe different objects, people, and places. I used them in so many ways, that publicly, I would forget and in front of an audience of strangers, WOO!!! Out came flying an inappropriate talk.
When you are the one being impolite, you generally never notice. To you, it’s okay, because there is Freedom of Speech. But when does it cross the line for you? When do you start to embarrass yourself and duck your head when the ones around you are being socially inappropriate. Yes, there is Freedom of Speech. I encourage everybody to use it, but know when to, and where to.
By not swearing, just for these two weeks. I feel like good things are coming my way. Whether you read The Secret or you read personal development blogs, there is always one rule of life: you attract in return the energy you give out.
There is no doubt that the use of vulgarity brings negative connotations to your life. It will only bring frustrations and inconveniences in your realm of happiness.
By not swearing, I feel more secure. I feel more inventive and creative with the words I choose to say. If I cannot find a replacement word, I say nothing. I close my eyes and count to 10. I feel like a lady. Ladies should not cuss in my opinion, it is unbecoming of us and sounds trashy. And I doubt any woman wants to have a reputation of a trucker. Please, let’s leave the swearing to the boys.
It feels amazing to feel respectable and feel tall. To put how I feel with the image I want to portray, is a such an empowering feeling, knowing that it’s all going to be worth it. It helps in shaping my perspective, my views, and my attitude. I encourage people to try this challenge, especially if you are like me and have had a problem with it over the years.
I guarantee this is a life-changing challenge.
