Share Your World: 4th November 2019

What is the meaning of true love?

Watch the movie ‘Frozen’ – sisters Anna and Elsa certainly find the meaning of true love ❀

Do acts of kindness have a motive?

Hmmm… Altruism is rarely ‘just’ altruism – even if someone completes an act of kindness purely to feel good about it, technically there is still a reward inherent in the action. But in my mind any act of kindness, for whatever underlying reason, is always a good thing for the person receiving it – ultimately the ‘what’ matters way more than the ‘why’ πŸ™‚

If we live in a civilized world why do we see so many distinctions between rich and poor?

Because structurally the status quo of our so-called civilized world is based on favouring financial status and personal greed above all else in a hierarchical framework deliberately designed to allow the rich to continue to rule the roost with a self-righteous sense of arrogant entitlement while so many of the rest of us struggle simply to survive…

Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world than in the real world?

Some people do seem to create an alter ego virtual self (and lifestyle) that seems too perfect to be true – and sometimes it seems they do seem to prefer their virtual ideal to their real-world reality. And having written that I suppose perhaps we all do that to a certain extent -we only show the good-mannered, well-behaved public-facing selves to our blogs.

Are you grateful?

Not anywhere near as much as I should be – I have such a lot to be grateful for, but instead of celebrating the positives I tend to focus too heavily on the negatives in life… I’m definitely more of an Eeyore than a Winnie the Pooh…

  1. Thank you Ruth for Sharing Your World! You’re very honest and forthright and that’s good. I’ve found, personally, that a goal of mine (life long) is to learn to do acts of kindness without weighing the cost. It’s tough, but it can be done. Might take somebody a whole lifetime to learn how though. Thank you for your contribution, I appreciate it! πŸ˜€

    1. We do tend to live in a ‘what’s in it for me?’ world – and it’s nice just to do something for someone because it feels good, because if it didn’t feel good we probably wouldn’t be motivated to do it in the first place πŸ™‚
