Is every piece of truth worth telling? (Credit to the magnificent Cyranny for this one)
This is one of those things that annoys me when I see it as part of a story plot. Goofus (male/female) has an affair. It is brief and it ends. Partner is none the wiser. But goofus feels obliged to tell partner about it because? Why does he/she feel that way?
A passionate need for honesty? If he/she were all that honest, the affair wouldn’t have occurred at all. Somehow, he/she managed to not destroy the primary relationship, but now all of a sudden, he simply has to confess.
Visit a priest. Visit a shrink. Talk you heart out. Then, go home and shut up.
In less explosive issues, I’m still inclined to keep my peace. If something is bothering me and it isn’t something I or Garry can fix, I don’t tell him). Why not? Because I’m already stressed about whatever it is. He doesn’t need the extra stress, so why tell him? If I have no choice, then I will, but so many of these things pass and you’ve save your partner from the stress.
Sharing isn’t caring if all you are going to do is worry or stress someone out. Is this dishonest? I think it’s a level higher than honesty. Too much information can cause a lot of pain.
Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince? (if you don’t know who those people are, just skip this question. It’s cool).
I know who they were, but I don’t miss either of them because I don’t remember anything they did. I’m not a close follower of pop music.
If you could only email or text people for the rest of your life (no other form of communication), which would you chose?
Email. I’m a 10-fingered typist and texting for me is agonizingly SLOW.
Would you prefer to work the midnight shift at a really creepy out of the way motel OR work alone for eternity?
I’ll take retirement, thanks.
Bonus question because yes, these are a weird bunch this week: What’s one secret you’re still keeping from your immediate family? (no details required. You could say something like “The lost weekend in 1982”. You can also answer “Why I NEVER keep secrets from my nearest and dearest!”).
Let’s look at this question logically. If I’ve been keeping that lost weekend secret for 38 years, why would I now broadcast the information on the Internet?
Feel free to share something uplifting that you’ve experienced so far in 2021.
Is getting vaccinated uplifting? If so, that would be it. Garry completed his vaccinations yesterday and I got my first one today.
