What’s something your brain tries to make you do, which you have to will yourself NOT to do? (could be a bad habit, a physical response to something…your interpretation is as good as mine! )
It’s quite ridiculous, but I clench my teeth pretty hard while I am doing something which requires force or concentration. My dentist has warned me against doing it as it is pushing my teeth to the left side of my mouth, creating gaps on the right side. But I do it instinctively and have to be on guard whenever I catch myself doing it.
When someone finds out what you do, or where you are from, what question do they always ask you?
The usual ones. I am not that interesting. Even when I tell them that I blog, in anticipation of evoking interest, I seldom find a spark. Maybe too many people blog so it’s not a novelty anymore. Or maybe most people are not fond of reading blogs.
What’s something terrifying that we’ve all come to accept as a fact of life?
That we are systematically destroying our planet’s environment and causing the ice at the polar caps to melt. It is a cause for serious concern, yet we are quite blasé about it.
Should governments make laws to protect people from harming themselves? Could that even work? (yes this one is deep, maybe too deep).
There are already laws. Suicide is against the law, so are drugs and other addictions. And as far as I know, self-harm is against the law. But these laws are very hard to implement. We need to create more awareness about the harm addictions and other ways of self-harm cause. Even smoking is so damaging but lots of people still do it. Even young adults.
Gratitude is an Attitude…
Please share your gratitude for this past week in the form of a photo, a quote or a thought. 🙂
I’m curious what type of questions YOU, the reader, would like to see more of? Less of? Has SYW gotten too philosophical and less fun in nature?
You have a good mix of questions in your weekly SYW! Fun and serious, philosophical and thought-provoking!
Though I have to really salute your ability to find new and interesting questions every week. I have been following SYW for more than a year and haven’t yet noticed a question being repeated.
