Break the R Word Habit

Habits take time to break and changing our language usage is no different. Some people can go cold turkey, others need to gradually reduce usage, and then there are slip ups. When I was in junior high and high school there were several words/phrases that we used flippantly. We were ignorant and most genuinely didn’t know better.

It’s not an excuse, but it helps understand how the usage became so commonplace and ingrained. It won’t stop or change without effort though. And even in my slip ups, I know the R word isn’t appropriate to use the way society has shaped its definition.

Looking back I’m kinda embarrassed at all the offensive things I used to say with my friends. We did not have ill intentions but our slang was rude. I can see that better now…

If you support awareness about the R word or are on the fence about ditching its usage (unless on sheet music) you must read Holly’s Word post. This sweet girl’s face will make you think twice. (Posted with Holly’s permission.)


Oh and I need to stop laughing at its usage in movies as part of jokes. It’s all part of the bad habit I’m trying to quit for good. I’m not perfect.
