The 100 Best Curse Words and Phrases of All TimeJul 20
One of my local superhero duties is to help two elderly sisters whenever they need a ride to the grocery store or the doctor. The older sister is 98, the younger one is in her mid 80′s.
One observation I’ve found with most elderly people is that they’ve stopped giving a fuck about what people think of them.
Every time the younger sister runs into a problem she swears. “Oh, shiiit!” I don’t know why, but no matter how many times she swears, I find it thoroughly amusing that this elderly woman has no problem cursing up a storm.
That go me wondering…
Why are swear words taboo? Why have we been conditioned to feel uncomfortable using them?
In Deepak & Gotham Chopra’s new book, “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes“, they talk about superheroes having the ability to thrive when there is chaos and confusion. Remaining rooted when madness swirls around them.
I interpret this to mean we must find ways to feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations. This takes practice since instinctually if feels like a contradiction.
So today we are going to practice by facing the taboo of using swear words, and getting comfortable cursing up a storm.
Almost all of us have a few swear words we consider “off limits”…those are the ones you should practice with. Plus, every superhero should have one good swear word in their arsenal.
A couple of my fellow SuperCHICKs helped me put together this video of the 100 Best Curse Words & Phrases of All Time to get you started.
