1. Do guns protect people or kill people? Or both?
A small percentage of the time they protect people. I should say they at least give people the allusion of being protected. However, in both cases, people welding guns do kill people.
The only exceptions are when people welding guns just wound a person. This can occur for any reason whether for protection, accident, spontaneous anger, or just out right intentional purposes.
2. Is it more important to be respected or liked?
I would say this is a catch 22 question. Ideally both, but I don’t think they can coexist in the work place versus a personal setting.
In a work situation the power hierarchy also has to be taken into consideration. For people in management respect is necessary. If you are simply liked in this setting you are usually not taken seriously. In the end, this usually leads to being disrespected. This, of course, cannot be tolerated in the work place, and job loss could occur.
Now in a personal situation aka friendly setting, I think you can be liked and respected at the same time. There is no need to worry about being disrespected as there is no power hierarchy.
If you are friends with someone and they also respect you it will usually goes both ways. If not the side of the friendship being constantly disrespected may end the friendship. However, there is always the ability to discuss what is upsetting one party in a personal relationship, This could save the friendship which is always a bonus. In addition there is no need to worry about job loss.
One last thought. In regards to romantic relationships. I don’t think this setting is so cut and dry. Obviously, there will be physical attraction. This is usually accompanied with both parties liking the personality of the other.
In this relationship respect is absolutely necessary. Mutual respect is needed in order for the relationship to continue and / or mature into something more. It is imperative for both parties to have the utmost respect for the other. If there is no mutual respect in this type of relationship it will not last. Romantic relationships also have the reputation for ending badly, fo one or both parties involved.
3. Is having a big ego a negative or positive trait? (yeah I know. Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)
Hmm. Another catch 22 perhaps? I would say a big ego could be a positive trait depending on the way the person handles themselves.
- Do they think they are God’s gift to good looks?
- Do they treat people as equals or minions?
- Do they want to be a friend or a boss?
- Do they constantly want to be pampered or take turns paying?
4. Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning?
To be totally honest, I am terrified of dying. I hope it’s a time when you are able to be reunited with loved ones’.
If new beginning means reincarnated I’m not opposed to reincarnation. However, I would hate losing all of my memories of those I miss and love.
I only know one thing. That one thing is I really don’t want to be alone, or worse in the bad land’s so to speak.
I ❤️ love to hear your thoughts so feel free leave a comment.
AS ALWAYS KEEP ON CRAFTING & LOVIN’ EVERY MINUTE! NO MATTE WHAT YOUR STYLE!…WHILE YOU AT IT ENJOY ANY WRITING OR OTHER PROJECTS YOU LOVE!!
Thanks Jennifer for Sharing Your World. I’ve never mentioned it, but I find your profile picture so cute! I bet you’re a fun person IRL! 🙂 Certainly cheerful! 😀
Thanks. I try to be cheerful. However, I am not able to accept my aging process so that real photo is years old. On the contrary the drawings obviously have the dates on them. I hope you are having a nice week.
I find it difficult to like someone I don’t respect, much less love. Not afraid of dying in the least. Bring it on.
I hear ya on the respect aspect. Love living that much huh? Well, right now it’s not so great, but in general. I hope you have a nice week.
