Foul word, never again
October 6, 2010 12:39am CST
Just recently, I was confronted by my husband after I uttered a bad word. I don't know but it just slipped out of my mouth. He reminded me that I should not be talking that way again because first and foremost, I am the one who told him that I don't want to hear those kind of words in the house. It's like a dose of my own medicine, that suddenly I kept quiet and asking myself why I lost my composure. Is it because of too much stress everyday? Honestly, I really felt bad after that. Luckily my kids are not around, if so it will be a double guilt feeling inside of me. As I always wanted to be a good example for my kids, it is really a bad move out of me during that time. How about you, have you been in the same situation before?

i did when i was in highschool. i consider myself christian so for me, uttering foul words / curses are unacceptable. but then, probably due to pressure, i did manage to say curses every now and then, and one of my classmates told me, "i thought you said, you never curse?" i was stunned. it took me aback. since then, i am extremely conscious of what i say and i tried so hard not to curse again which i successfully did up to now, regardless of how mad i am. i always put myself in other people's shoes. ask myself, "what would i feel if someone said that to me?"

Yes, it is really a big no to curse, may it be intentional or not. We have to be cautious all the time. As they say, those that we eat can nourish one's self. But those that are coming out from our lips can be as sharp as a double sided blade. Once said, it cannot be restored. And you're right that in order for us to know and weigh the damage that will be done is for us to put ourselves in the shoes of others. That way we can lessen or eventually eliminate the impact that suppose to happen.
