Questions:

Must we have evidence to know the truth?

Ahhh…In a court room, you usually do need evidence. Generally though, a lot of the time, we don’t always need evidence. In fact, some people just ignore it all together *cough Trump was not exonerated* *cough there are more than two genders*. Personally, sometimes I don’t need evidence to know the truth, but it is helpful.

How much control does a person have over their life?

I think about 65% control,lol. We have control over certain things, but we don’t have control over everything. We don’t have control how others choose to treat us, we don’t have control over people to give us that job we really want. We do have control over, if we don’t get the job we wanted, what’s our next step then? We can control how we react to others. Then there are things like cancer, having anxiety feels like you don’t have control sometimes. But we can control, as an example, getting yearly checkups, watching how we treat our bodies. I have reasonably high cholesterol, as does most of my family. So I’m on tablets right now, but I can control my diet and exercise to help bring it down too.

What is gravity and how does it work?

Well gravity, in space, makes you float. Gravity on earth means that we don’t float. It has something to do with how fast earth goes around the sun. I want to ask my partner, he’s a physics teacher. But I’m going to answer it on my own…Can you tell?lol. It has something to do with the sun pulling on earth. Or any planet really.

Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness?  How about vice versa?

Of course! I don’t know, but sure,lol. It’s hard to think of anyone who hasn’t experienced both of those, who I can think of.


Gratitude:

Please feel free to share a song, a poem, a quote or an image or photo to show what you were grateful for during this past week.    (Optional as always).

The control question actually inspired me to apply for potential jobs. I’ve always thought that I would do really well at a doggy day care centre, or something similar. So I cold-canvassed a couple of places today. The worst they can say is no, right? At least they have my information and can tell my enthusiasm, if they want.

Questions:

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make them?

I think it’s a reminder to ourselves, that we are not perfect.

How do we know that pleasure is good and pain is bad?

I think it’s that dopamine? … I think?lol

What problem or situation did TV / movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?

When I really think about it, it has to be the Cosby’s. Only because though they were such a beautiful family (on tv) that it made me think racism isn’t an issue. Meaning, I didn’t know it was even a thing, if that makes sense? I remember when Oprah was talking to someone about black families on tv, and how “The Cosby’s” was the first show where she saw a black man lay his head loving in the lap of his wife.

Does that make sense? I guess my answer is the opposite of the actual question,lol

If you drive, do you speed when no one is watching?   Have you ever run a red light late at night on purpose, particularly if it doesn’t seem to change very quickly?   If you don’t drive, what minor law may you have broken?

No,I would never do that. You just know that the ONE time you do it, there’s going to be police, right there. As far as I am aware, I have never broken a Law…Although I probably have done jay walking.

What positive things are you finding to do to occupy your time right now?

I am writing and trying to organise my Discord channel, playing YouTube in the background.

When are you happy?

Have you ever had a moment with someone, or they’ve said one line. And it’s made you do a whole 180 with them? You look at them differently, you realise how toxic they are? Now have you been just as shock when someone has not had a problem with that person has said. I just had this happen recently, where one friend pretty much insulted another to their face and this person liked the comment made?

It did make me wonder when people are truly happy, do they allow people to speak to them like that? One of the reasons I never got unhappy about my ex-friends accusations, was because I had started to distance myself enough for me to realise how good I had it without them.

Have you ever had a situation when you are so happy with your life that it doesn’t matter when someone insults you? Or tried to hurt you?

Sad? Scared? It’s still okay!

This is kind of a “run on” from my other post “This why we can’t have nice things”…Am I the only one getting seriously over people telling other people, usually strangers, what someone can be scare of sad about?

I write this post, because I finally…nearly, lost it on line with someone. I did say “God damn, I am over people telling others how to feel”. There is an amazing artist I follow on Instagram, I am pretty sure he is German. However, he decided to come out, and he’s only been out for a couple of months. This one person started going about how it’s literally the safest time it’s ever been to “come out” and they are over the victim-hood. That there are actual dangerous situations out there

Like, shut up, alright? Are these people actually kidding me?

You’ve got the situation in Brunei

You have the situation in Russia, with not only LGBT being arrested for protesting, but allies as well.

The White House has banned transgender people from the Military.

People are still being kicked out from their homes when they come out.

While it might be “safer” it’s not exactly safe by miles now, is it? Not when you’ve got leaders making it easier to discriminate and harm the LGBT community.

It doesn’t matter anyway. We have NO right to tell other people how to feel about something so momentous. Why do people keep saying that “Well you can’t be sad about that…There’s real tragedies going on”. Go screw yourselves! When we don’t have to have people feel like they have to “come out”, then that’ll be when we know real progress.

QUESTIONS:

  • Are you thin or thick skinned?   Are you easily offended or tend to let it just roll off your back like a duck does with water?  I used to get really upset and hold it in and became offended easily. Now, not so much. I can’t really afford to do that anymore. I’ve learnt whose there for me and that’s the important thing. I got called a Charlie today,lol…Meaning I’m like a Jack Russell, I seem all cute, little and sweet, but when something makes me mad…I go. Charlie because that’s what they think most Jack Russell’s are called,lol. I can accept that,lol

  • How important are morals in a healthy society? What are the most important morals for citizens to have?  (Credit to Rory for this question) There are a few (I think):

Honesty

Respect and Dignity for others.

Empathy

  • What will your epitaph be? It’d have to be “I’ll be fine”. I have said that my whole life. Even when I’m not, I say I’ll be fine, because generally, I am. I am still here and I am “fine”. Everything will work out fine.
  • (I don’t admire either/or questions much, which is why you won’t see ‘em often.  Today is an exception)  French toast, pancakes or waffles? Can I have all three at once? =D If I had to choose though:

  • What were you grateful for this past week? Getting more work shifts! It’s been horrible, every day up until my shifts. Every time I signed into my work email, someone else wasn’t going to be there. Which I am honestly surprised by, because usually at this busy time of the year, people can’t have a whole week off. If I wasn’t making good money from this, I’d be so annoyed. But I am really struggling to keep my finances in order. At the moment I feel like I maybe the only one at work and that’s not good,lol. So if I’ve seemed quieter this week, it’s because I am over tired.

Bye Bye Haters!…

I really feel like this year has become the year where I stopped giving a …

I would like to just say that I love these little Beetles, they are so determined with something so gross,lol

I feel like this has been the first year where I really stopped caring so much. Every now and then I’ll have to take time off of social media, because my anxiety plays up. But I feel like I actually have spent a year truly respecting myself. Sometimes respecting yourself does mean to take time to yourself.

It’s interesting because it was thanks to my three ex “best friends” and what happened at the beginning of the year. I was in shock for a while, maybe a week and then after that I just got annoyed and I’ve been annoyed for a while now, but I still didn’t miss them. I don’t even think for an hour. Too myself, if I can let go of them, and be alright…Because it was right…Then I can do it with anyone! Especially if it’s right and that’s when everything go easier for me.

That is something I want to focus on more next year. Walking away instead of hanging around and hanging on for sentimental reasons. If it’s not right, then it’s not right.

Sometimes I get angry

One of the comments that I get asked is “Do I get angry”

Yes, yes I do…I am human after all.

  • If I see an animal being abused, I get angry
  • If I see someone get bullied,I get angry
  • Do not bully children. I do not care how much of a “punk” you think they are. I’m looking at all those “adults” who bullied the Parkland students.
  • I don’t get so much “angry” with Trump supporters now…I just feel sorry for them. How dumb are they?!

Sometimes it does surprise me this question because hasn’t everybody at some point been angry about something? When I thought about it a little bit more though I started to realise that nearly everybody is angry about everything these days. Some of the guys I’ve known in my life have had terrible, just terrible ex girlfriends. You know the type, they had a bad night, so everyone else had better watch out. I’ve just never been like that.

As I suspect a lot of my readers are this way too.

I just don’t understand that way at all. I have always felt life is hard enough, why make it unnecessarily harder for other people?
