Share Your World: 29th June

Thanks to Melanie for the Share Your World questions every week.
Check her out here

“” Welcome to Share Your World!

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

    Here are her questions for this week:

Must we have evidence to know the truth?
That depends. Evidence to prove guilt in a crime, evidence in science to support theories and develop vaccines, but when it comes to something like faith, that’s personal beliefs and acceptance. Sometimes even having the evidence, we don’t want to accept the truth.

How much control does a person have over their life?
When we are born and when we are infirm, others take charge. For the time in between I would like to say all of it, but my rose tinted glasses are broken now. As we grow up, we get caught by peer pressure, make bad choices and bad judgements, but even then, we have the last say in our actions.  I put on weight this week because I ate too much of the wrong things. Nobody’s fault, I put the food in my mouth, so Will Power got beat.
It’s when the lines become blurred and the difference between right and wrong varies depending on who is asking, who’s in power, and who’s holding the purse strings.

What is gravity and how does it work?
All I can say here is that when we get older, everything goes south and we don’t bounce back as well as we used to!

Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness?  How about vice versa?
Now this is interesting, because if you’ve never experienced one emotion, how do you know you are living the other? It’s like asking do you cry because you are sad?

The Gratitude bit

My gratitude to everyone who has sent me virtual hugs today. I appreciate it and am feeling much better, so am returning them BIG TME!

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  1. Thanks Di for Sharing Your World. You’ll ‘bounce’ back from the slight delay in the weight olympics, you have amazing will power! 😆 at the ‘south’ comment on the gravity question! Yes, things tend to ‘not stay in place’ after a certain age/point. It’s learning to be mature about that, which tells a lot about a person I think! I tend to gawp and then laugh at myself. Because it’s ALL not staying in place! O_o

    • I’ve always laughed at myself, mainly because it was easier to start the ball rolling than get upset when someone else did. Now I’m grateful for my sense of humour, however misplaced it may be sometimes as it has seen me through a lot recently.
