Swearing

I quit swearing this year. It was my New Year's resolution and when that didn't eradicate those words from my vocabulary, I gave it up for Lent. That seemed to have helped. I'm not perfect about it still, but I'm MUCH better than I was about swearing. I'm not dropping those words into casual conversations anymore at all. The only times I slip is if I'm really really mad or if I drop something on my foot or something along those lines.

Since I'm not saying and thinking those words all the time, when I see or hear them, they are like 100 times more offensive to me than they were. I think that's a good thing. If you hear/say/read those words all the time, they don't have any power anymore and I think they should have power to really MEAN that you've just HAD it. You know? Does that make sense outside my own head?
