You have probably heard or been told that swearing is not only bad for you but that it should be avoided at all costs. While we may not all follow these rules or logic, there is a negative stigma associated with swearing. But it turns out it’s really bad.
Not only is not cursing a one-way street for a sideshow in hell, but it’s also good for you. To make things even better, cursing has a number of benefits that will improve your quality of life. So the next time you feel the need to let go, go for it. In her book “Cursing is good for you”: The Amazing Science of Bad Language, Emma Byre breaks the science of blasphemy as the language of virtue.
