FOWC with Fandango — Personal

‘It’s personal’.
Such a small statement, but it covers a multitude of scenarios.
No doubt we have all experienced personal conflict regarding relationships, concerns for our health, money matters, our kids, work etc. Many of us are lucky in having someone we can confide in, one who will help put things into perspective. They say a problem shared is a problem halved, but then it does depend on who you share it with.
Sometimes though whatever it is is SO personal, we can’t discuss it with our partners, or even our doctors.
Why is that I wonder? Is it the way we’ve been brought up? How we see ourselves compared with others? Insecurity?
When it comes to health however, embarrassment shouldn’t be an issue.

We all have personal preferences too (I prefer dogs to cats, but still like cats), food choices,  the car we drive, how we spend our time and with whom, our home furnishings. It’s what makes us individuals. If we were all the same, just think how boring life would be. Mind you, that could be a plus…….. no-one could be singled out for being different!

Hubby and I had a very personal wedding. We invited the Mums and Dads, plus three witnesses. It was our day, and we wanted no pomp and ceremony. It was a good day, just the way we wanted it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A well written piece on ‘personal’. I do think being British has its drawbacks when sharing (or not!) personal things.
