I can’t believe how naive I am to the danger and the effects this word has not only on my life, but also on the lives of the people around me. You may think I am overreacting, but I’m going to show you just how dangerous this word is.
You watch my three-part series on The Most Inappropriate Word I Use on Regular Basis here:
The Most Inappropriate Word I Use on a Regular Basis (Part 1)
