It is time to Share my world again. This challenge has been one of my favorites for a long time now. Led first by Cee and now be Melanie. The challenge is to answer five (or so) questions each week and in answering them to share my view of the world. The questions and my answers are below. When you have finished reading them click on THIS LINK and see how others have answered Melanie’s challenge.
- Where’s the line between respectful disagreement and being downright mean (bullying) to someone? I think the difference is in the spirit of control that is exercised in the midst of disagreement. I should be free to express my disagreement with people but love dictates that I do not insist on controlling anything other than my own boundaries. As soon as I cross the line into forcing someone to agree with me then I am bullying. Now that said I have to be allowed to keep my own boundaries. For instance in my own house I expect people to function within certain bounds of propriety. If they feel they cannot do that then they are welcome not to come to my house. That is not bullying that is holding proper boundaries.
- Would you prefer to live in a world where alcohol was free or where politicians were honest? I don’t drink so free alcohol does little for me. I think we could all use a little more honesty across the board these days. Politicians are only a symptom of a much larger problem.
- What’s one habit you have that your family or friends think is rather childish? I like superheroes.
- Would you rather go to a big party and rub shoulders with the rich and famous or go to an amazing quiet Garden that hardly anyone has ever visited? Garden most definitely!
Halloween Question: What do you think of the idea of “trick or treat or money for a charity” as a way of making Halloween more useful?
Let’s see extra fat grams or social justice……. Ummm…….
