It’s time for another one of Melanie’s Share Your World prompts. Let’s answer her “off-the-cuff” questions.
How do you feel about sharing your computer or phone password with your partner?
We know each other’s passwords so that if anything happens to either one of us, the other will have access to all accounts and websites.
What is the greatest struggle you’ve overcome? (This isn’t meant to be invasive, just use general terms if you’d like. Or if not, feel free to pass on the question. That’s allowed too).
I have struggled with having rejected the religious beliefs of my family and most of my friends. I so wanted to embrace their beliefs, but my head and heart (and pragmatism) just couldn’t reconcile the mythologies they clung to with the reality I was experiencing. As a result, I have lost some friends and even alienated some family members. But I am at peace with my atheism.
If heaven is real and you died tomorrow, do you think you would get in? Why or why not? (This is purely speculation, no bias if you don’t believe.)
This is an easy one since I don’t believe in an afterlife and I believe that when I die, everything will cease to exists, at least from my perspective. So since there is no heaven, I’m sure I won’t get in to that “place” that doesn’t exist in reality.
What makes you feel like you really need to be alone?
After reading, watching, or hearing political news, I just want to be left alone to stew.
Do you have any traditions around this time of year?
October is the Major League Baseball month leading up to the World Series. The post season playoffs start tomorrow. Go Boston Red Sox. Go San Francisco Giants!
