For this week’s Share Your World, Melanie is going deep. She wants to know…
Are human beings required to better themselves and will doing that make them happier?
“Required” to better themselves? What happens if they don’t comply? Is it noted on their permanent record? No, humans are not “required” to better themselves. Will it make them happier if they do? I guess that depends upon how motivated they are to better themselves.
Is it easier to love or to be loved?
That depends upon how much of a control freak you are. If you like to be in control, then it’s easier to love, since you’re in charge of your own feelings and emotions. As to being loved by someone else, that other person is in control over how they feel about you and all you can do is react to it.
Also, it depends on whether you’re the assertive type or the passive type. I think for the passive type, it’s easier to be loved, while for the assertive type, it’s easier to love.
Outside traumatic brain injury, can memories be completely erased?
I think that those suffering from dementia or from Alzheimer’s may have significant memory loss. Are those memories “completely erased” or are they just irretrievable? And is there really a difference? I don’t know.
Is there such a thing as a good death?
I’d say that dying peacefully and painlessly in your sleep would be a “good” death.
And one ‘silly’ one because the former questions were fairly serious: What do you imagine is inside a baseball?
Pick me! Pick me! I know!
