Got Beef With Cursing?

Hello Beautiful people.

I’d like to get something off my chest…

I’ve been blogging for almost seven years now. And for those who have followed me from the start, you might notice that how I write now compared to how I wrote back then is astonishingly different. Likewise…it is important to note that I am also an astonishingly different person, living an astonishingly different life, as is evident in my writing today.

In short: I now let fucks, and other wonderful words of the like, fly freely. Does this make me less of a lady? I don’t fucking think so. In fact, I believe the contrary.

While I don’t think I need to rationalize my desire to use strong language, I’ll tell you anyway. It’s really quite simple:

1). It feels good

2). It feels right

3). I want to

4). It’s actually what I am thinking, and don’t you deserve to know that?

I think you do!…

I know that most of my readers enjoy the way that I write because you tell me you do (and I have google analytics). I also know that some people read what I write and don’t like it. Both are fine. I don’t expect everyone to like me, my opinions or the way that I write, and I don’t lose sleep over it. It is what it is. I am still me, and I like me.

I was recently told by someone, that because I write using explicit language, I was less of a lady and she lost her respect for me.

Okay. Fine. Her opinion was not valuable to me, so BYE FELICA.

But, I think the big question here is:

DOES BAD LANGUAGE BOTHER YOU? 

If so, WHY?

In my opinion, they’re just words. Words that I happen to think make life more colorful; more interesting. They’re expressive. They’re funny. They can be heavy. They can be light. But, like every word, their meaning requires context, tone, and delivery to be understood as intended. There are also studies showing that people who use expletives more frequently are more intelligent and happier.

So I call bullshit on that statement…I happen to have more respect for individuals who freely and unabashedly express themselves and their opinions. Having the ability to say exactly what is on your mind is empowering and inspiring. I have not ONE OUNCE of shame in my game.

I don’t know about you, but I am not interested in staying in a safe, little square of a buttoned-up, phony facade of a life that is more concerned with what other people think. You see, that is where people go wrong – they live their life based on other people’s opinions- this is a game you will always lose. The more important question to ask is “What do YOU think of YOU?”

I say…if you want to judge me for being me, go ahead. It doesn’t change the fact that I am still me, and I like me.

***

We’ll finish with this BOMB of knowledge…
