Here are Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week. They are quite deep and I don’t spend a lot of time pondering things like this so my answers come from my first reactions on reading them.
- Can we really know everything?
No, I don’t believe so. I don’t think that any individual can know everything and as a species I don’t know if we will exist long enough to know everything. Maybe it’s a good thing. If we knew everything what would we do then?
- Where were people before they were born?
Maybe in the same place we’ll be after we die? Prior to the womb I mean. I can’t visualise that. I wasn’t me until I was born and I don’t know where I will be after I die or even if I will still be me.
- Does the Law of Attraction exist? (Law of Attraction as I understand it) is a school of thought where positive thinking brings about good changes. Some say it’s made them wealthy. Others say it improves their health or their outlook on life)
I don’t know a lot about this. I do think that thinking positive thoughts and visualising how you want your life to be is better for you than living with negative thoughts. I don’t know whether you could become wealthy by thoughts alone though. You have to work too. I think it is a good way to live your life but it’s not an exact science.
- Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world? If so, why? If nay, why?
I am not sure I really understand the question. Is it about people who create a persona online that represents how they would like to be seen rather than how they really are? Social media has such a hold over people these days. Everyone is different so I don’t think there is a definitive answer to this question. I’m the same person online as offline although maybe if you met me you’d find me a bit shyer and more awkward than you expected. But I’m happy with who I am.
Are you happy?
Yes, mostly I am. I’m more concerned about the future than I used to be and there are things in my life I wish were different but by and large I’m happy and content.
