Swearing/Cursing Unnecessary or expressive?

I think swearing can be expressive to people. I don't care if people swear but it bothers me if they use the f-bomb in every sentence. I just can't swear though. Every time I say something I regret it so much and I feel terrible. Even if I say hell or crap. It's bothering me right now as I'm typing it!

unnecessary and expressive, people sometimes really mean it when they r angry, but other times it's just a "bad word", that people think is fun to say

Swearing is the action describing that you have too limited of a vocabulary to express yourself in a different way.
So I think its unnecessary.

I mean, it's helpful when you're frusturated/angry/want to insult someone/etc, but unlike my friend Sarah, who loves the f word and injects it into every other sentence, most of the swearing I do is at my sister being a baka and pissing me off, or in my head at idiots or people I don't like, and most of the words I know are in random other languages.

I'd rather not go through this again..if you wouldn't mind. Reading the thread would be a great way to see how this isn't necessarily so

Will do, and I know there can be exceptions.... to some degree. Like if you are hammering something and you hit your hand, you might scream some profanity, which I guess is normal. Also, I don't think that people should be restricted from saying what they want...That takes away the freedom of speech.
But if you are cussing just to cuss.... Well, im not exactly for that, especially when there are tons of other word options that could work better (and perhaps be less offensive)
