i'm pretty sure it's only a crazy woman who would do such a thing.

this is my blog. my journal. i can write what i want. and if you don't like what i write you don't have to read it. you have a choice. you can just log off. you never have to visit it again. you don't have to be offended by anything i write.
well, i want to be able to do that same thing when someone is slinging expletives. just what is up with swearing? i've certainly swore in my life. but i have to say it has never left me feeling better. not once. quite the contrary. it has only fed into the anger or frustration that i was feeling to start with. and it has always left me feeling small. very small.
i try hard not to swear. and not to let vulgar words enter my mind. am i always successful? no. every once in awhile a "hell" or a "damn" crosses my lips. and while these words are only mildly offensive and commonplace in our culture, they are still obscentities when used in anger and hate. i don't want to be that kind of person. nor do i want to be around the kind of person that screams and hisses words of ugliness. our world today has enough chaos and meanness and hatred. and i sometimes have to be witness to those things. but i refuse to be defined by ugliness. there is still goodness and beauty and kindness all around me. and that is what i am going to surround myself with.
