Weekend Writing Prompt #169 – Misanthrope

Sammi Cox is our host for the Weekend Writing Prompt. You can find out more and join in by clicking here
As a rule, I’m a caring and loving individual in respect of people, animals and family. Wherever possible, you can count on me for support and a shoulder to cry on.
I’ll happily give my opinion if asked for it, but can also keep my own counsel or a secret if you needed a confidante.
I had to look “misanthrope” up and I was shocked to find that as far as holidaymakers and shoppers were concerned, I have turned into one!
The definition is as follows
‘one who harbors dislike or distrust of human character or motives in general.’

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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. Well, to all descriptions there is a range of expression … 😉

  2. To be sure shopping and holidays can be times where it is not easy to like people.

    Over the years, I’ve learned the hard lessons of discernment regarding my fellow humans. Only by acknowledging my own dark side am I equipped to accept others on a less misanthropic basis. Good reflection. I enjoyed it.

    That’s because like all misanthropes you went to the school of hard knocks ! 💜💜💜
