From a very early age, we are told by our parents and elders to keep our language clean and to watch our mouth. We've always been under the belief that profanity is ugly, unattractive and a sign of naivety. Holy fish! But science narrates a different story completely.
Well, it's time to bid goodbye to all the illusions that say swearing makes you look stupid or is an ugly habit. Though swearing may be frowned upon, but can offer several unexpected benefits.
So, get ready to heal your body and soul and take the colorful oath or spirited epithet.
Yes, you read that right. It is been known that those who utter the expletive of their choice are likely to experience less pain than those who chant neutral words. However, this thing applies to those who swear a few times a day and not to so-called 'chain-swearers'.
Swearing can give a greater sense of power and control over a bad state. Profanity activates our fight response, in a good way, and boosts our confidence and self-esteem.
'Curse words = popularity'. Don't believe? Remember 'The Wolf of Wall Street', it had so many curse words that each curse word worked out every 20 seconds and you can see the conclusion, it is a five-time Oscar-nominated film. So, now you know what to do.
For some people, swearing can be a way to express or show that they really mean something or it is really important to them. Well, it can make you look more interesting as a person. So try out.
As long as profanity doesn't look offensive, it can be used as humour portion to crack up pals.
Swearing can be cathartic and can actually have the soothing effect. So whether you are dumped or are tensed, swearing will help you out in dealing with the pain or emotions.
Not all the times but yes swearing can help relationships. So let's not forget swearing is important for creating close relationships or friendship with others.
