Strangely Strange Stranger

Rory’s come up with an interesting concept, and like several bloggers I follow, I like Q&A posts!
Check his post out here, and have a go. It’s food fodder for fought thought

Who are you closest to that you can entrust your deepest concerns with?

How likely are you to discuss a confidence with someone other than a friend, a loved one, a companion or indeed family?

Who are you likely to talk to – stranger wise – when you need to tell someone – ‘something?’

If you were to confide in a stranger – what would be the reason to do so?

Before I answer these, I’d like to point you to this post from three years ago.
Also, strangers find it easy to talk to me about their problems and on more than one occasion have held a crying woman (and a man too for that matter) who needed a physical presence.

So:

Who are you closest to that you can entrust your deepest concerns with?
Undoubtedly Hubby. We talk about anything and everything. He is my rock, my sanity, and my everything. I am convinced that without him by my side, I would not have got through my cancer ordeals so well.
I am lucky in that I am close to Bro in NZ and we can talk about anything too, and when my Dad was alive, I could talk to him too.

How likely are you to discuss a confidence with someone other than a friend, a loved one, a companion or indeed family?
Extremely unlikely.  If something is told to me in confidence, it will go no further, not even to Hubby unless he was included in the first place.

Who are you likely to talk to – stranger wise – when you need to tell someone – ‘something?’
I have acquaintances, but I suppose chatting to strangers occurs best when you’re in the hairdressers chair being pampered with a haircut! As for a need to tell someone something, that would depend on what that something was.

If you were to confide in a stranger – what would be the reason to do so?
I don’t think I would. I’ve put some of my concerns out in my blog and the response was phenomenal, but confidences are private, so I’m unlikely to.
I can keep them though (see 2).

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.
