We all curse in one way or another. You stub your toe? Curse. Guy cuts you off on the street? Curse. Maybe there’s a good reason why our brain begins to curse right away. Studies reveal that cursing is an emotional response, it’s not language based. So cursing can be compared to crying or screaming, which is why it actually may be good for you. Because a different part of the brain is used for cursing, it actually is able to lessen pain.
Cursing is great for when you stub your toe or when something bad in general happens to you. Though it doesn’t mean you should go on cursing for every little thing, but it does help. I know if I ever trip and scrape my knee, which still happens occasionally, I curse and it does seem to help. A little burst of road rage every now and then helps and sometimes you can actually feel yourself quickly coming to peace again.
So keep cursing and start cursing if you don’t. Holding things in never helps. Plus it’s not like you’re actually using those curse words toward someone else. It’s more likely that you’re using them for your own good.
