There are lot of people who incorporate swearing into their vocabulary. Sometimes it may not even mean a thing. It just sounds like an easy way of saying I do not care, I give up, maybe some things you do not like without thinking about it. Do you swear a lot? What does it mean to you? Does it mean something to the people who listen to you? Has swearing ever make a situation for you any better? This a habit hard to remove specially when everyone does it.

It is nice to hear from you again in a different tone. I am quite relieved to hear from you again. I usually watch a lot of movies. Sometimes I remember them so well. Even now a days, movies are full of swearing. It comes to the point where a bad situation comes out and the initial reaction reaction for me is that I could hear the actor/actress expressing themselves in my head with swearing. It is so bad that I couldn't get it out of my head. It is like a song you have listened to that gets stuck in your head for the whole day. 8-)

Hello Jatamogue! I neither wear nor curse. When I was a child, I used to swear to show my friends that I am saying truth (when I was really saying the truth) because they also used to do the same. But after entering into teens, I have stopped doing so. I have never sweared then. I do promise my friends to keep their secrets secret, but I never neither wanted nor needed to swear. My brother has the habit of swearing a lot. So, for me swearing is mostly a bad habit. About cursing, I have never cursed anybody in my life. Even if somebody hurts me a lot and I feel really bad, still I don't curse anybody. I believe cursing others is not good for ourselves because its just going to hurt us by making us feel more bad about that person. vani^_^

Well, it means a lot to hear support from other people. I guess, it must start somewhere. Actions usually prove yourself more than words. Actions make your words stronger when sounding them out. It takes more time to take action than to speak words but taking action is given more importance by most people.

i do swear. and its mainly because its an expression. usually when im angry or someone annoyed me to the highest level, i curse to let out what i feel. but usually i dont really mean it and i dont say it to insult the person. its a mere form of letting out the bad energy. ^__^;; there are cases when i curse just because im frustrated and its not directed to anyone. again, its a way of releasing the bad energy. ^__^ talking helps us ease some or our feelings right? so there. ^__^

There are not a lot of secrets to a person who can freely express themselves. Or maybe the opposite. That must be a lot of influence of bad energy storing up in you. I do not find swearing making me feel any better. I just feel guilty and selfish after doing so. I try to expose myself to better things to not let that happen. I guess we have individuality. Enjoy your evening. 8-)

I start to swear when i want the person i made a promise that what i promise will come true,that what I am saying is true, and i swear meaning, i am 99% sure of what i am saying. Curse, are those who have badlucks with life, or they are buried with anger,that is why they are already giving a curse to their enemy.

Well, I do swear sometimes. But when I swear I want to show the people how much I care about them. Or I usually swear to show myself more confident in the conversation. And I don't usually swear. I know people who swears most of the time and the people who hears them often swearing doesn't really take them seriously. And about cursing. I don't at all curse anybody in the public at least.

I always see the reflection of people's minds in the words they use. You could get a lot in what they talk about. I find it difficult to understand how swearing could can make people who really care about benefit. Maybe it is how people might express themselves in different ways. You might be thinking the way your peeps do. It's nice to have good friends.
