Darn: (adj) a more proper version of the word “damn.”
Anything that’s worth a “darn” should be worth a “damn.”
Anything that requires a “shoot” might be better stated with a “shit.”
The problem is not whether the words are profane.
It’s about whether the words are appropriate.
Being unable to find your keys in the morning isn’t worth a “damn, fucking shit-to-hell.”
But seeing an evil done to another human being requires more incrimination than “darn you, jerk.”
We just don’t seem to understand that evil isn’t spoken or enacted, but rather, reveals the intention of our heart.
That means you could be complimenting someone but you’re so insincere that you might as well have criticized them.
The words should match.
You don’t become a better person by saying “darn.”
But you do become a better person by having fewer and fewer people that you want to damn.
