Not much, I rarely use obscene words and that happens only when I get really angry. I gave up all the JW lingo long ago words like the truth, the worldly people, etc
has your language changed since you left?
i've definitely dropped the witness speak but haven't added anything new to my language. i find that talking to my mother can be irritating because her speech is littered with witness speak and it drives me nuts. i never noticed it when i was a jw because i was speaking the same language. now everytime she says her "conscience is bothering her" or she "corrected someone's thinking" i want to scream.
I am less profane now than when I was a JW, probably because there are fewer things in life that are pissing me off.
Yep! I could make a sailor blush and....I've invented quite a few profanities of my own!!
I even allow myself the privilige of saying 'bloody' in front of my JW parents. They'll get over it. I hear my sister uses the 'F' word in front of them and they haven't had a stroke yet!
I can swear like a sailor
I am much more outspoken since being out of the org, both for myself and others. Can't shut me up if I see someone bieng treated unfairly.
maintenant, je parle francais.
I swear a bit less now, it's not like I'm rebelling from anything anymore so the novelty has worn off a bit. I still have a bad mouth, but it's not nearly as bad as it was when I was a witness. I remember actually dropping the F-Bomb in the Kingdom hall before, that was a different expirience.
I swore privately and under my breath when I was still a JW. Angry teenager and all that...
I swear quite a bit now and I don't even notice it most of the time.
My new favorite comes to me courtesy of a SciFi show. "Frack" slips out more than the true "F" word now. Which cracks me up when I notice it. How geeky am I? LOL
If I'm in front of people I don't know, or around kids, I cool the swearing. But if I'm feeling relaxed and comfortable with those around me, I definitely can have a colorful vocabulary.
yep! I now say all the expletives, a-z, but only at the right occasions. And I feel good...
I came back to being a normal [beeeep] human being.
Pure language my [beeeep] .
