SHARING MY WORLD AND OH WHAT A WORLD IT IS! – By Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World 2.0


Questions:Β 

What harsh truths do you prefer to ignore?

All of them, thank you. But I don’t because I can’t. I’m sort of the fixer around here, so unless I want to find us out on the street or living in our very small car, what I need to deal with, I need to deal with. There’s no choice.

Is free will real or just an illusion?

I think we all have some free will, but it’s not unlimited. It’s as if you are in a special room that was made just for you. You can sit in any of the sofas or chairs, eat at the table, watch TV. Do anything the room allows, but you can’t leave the room. This is your room.

We all think we have free will until we hit a trench in the road and the bus falls into the hole. Some things we can control. Over many others, we have no control. With all our will focused on the issue, we can’t do anything about it.

Right now, we are waiting for Coronavirus to arrive or not. Will we get it? I hope not, but there is no free will involved. We do what we are supposed to do … and then, we wait.

For everything, there is a limit.

What is the meaning of true love?

All I know is that I’ve got a piece of it and I like it very much! What it means? I’m not sure it means anything. It just IS.


As for all the questions about St. Patrick, I admit I don’t know anything about him. I could look him up on Google, but what would be the fun of that? We did spend three weeks in Ireland. Does that count? And yes, it is indeed a very green country. A very beautiful and green country.

  2. I love your analogy for the free will, and I too would love to deny everything.

    • If denial really worked, I think it ould be everyone’s first port of call when life got difficult. Sadly, it doesn’t work except in very small amounts.

      As for free-will, there are decisions we can make, but many more over which we have no control. Right now is a really excellent example of being in a situation out of everyone’s control. Of course, if people keep acting like fools, it will definitely make everything much worse.

      • My friends and I who are used to crap are doing fine, just being cheerfully isolated or dissocaited or whatever and staying safe and being active online. No biggie. It seems to be those who expect the world to be a certain way who are getting worked up about it all. Like, my elderly mother kindly offered to help send my spouse to ‘the best doctors because of a severe health issue that is a big probelm now (not virus-related), and my sister who is in charge of her finances said that there is no way to get any help from that money because ‘it took a big hit recently in the stock market’, so her advice is to hope dude gets better without the kind offer of good medical care. That is crappy and gotta say shows quite a small mind, presumably because she doesn’t want her eventual inheritance to be less. Oh well–it’ll work out one way or the other anyhow, but does not make me rush to include her in my will personally, whereas otherwise i might have just said she could have my money etc.–poor foresight on her part.

        • I think the people who are the most upset have lost their jobs and are wondering how they are going to feed themselves and their kids. The teenagers and twenty-somethings are just stupid and selfish. They don’t care who they might infect or what might happen to them.

  3. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World – Provocative Edition. πŸ˜‰ Very wise and sensible answers too! No worries about the St. Patty’s version of SYW, it’s merely something to pass the time and for trivia buffs too I suppose! πŸ™‚
