Deep and Meaningful

Answers to “Truth not Dare” Eight
. . .fantastic questions. Some fun, some deep, some confronting, some straightforward.

On Sat Aug 7 I wrote:
It's finally time for me to join the ranks of those who play the three questions game.
So, whatever you care to ask I will answer truthfully and discursively.

(But I reserve the right to be ambiguous lol)

Romancer67 asked:

Q Why did you decide to play this game?
I was immensely impressed when the first people offered to play it. It looked like they were putting their heads right under the guillotine and just waiting for the blade to fall. I thought I’d never do it but the awareness that there was this challenge out there waiting to be met wouldn’t go away. Then after the holidays Amber offered to play, and I sort of went, “What the heck? If he can, I can.” There’s a lot of stuff I’ve been trying to work out lately and maybe I wanted encouragement to look more closely at stuff; maybe I was just asking for help distracting myself from the daily grind.

Q What is the question that you really want to be asked?
(What have you learnt about yourself by giving and receiving via blogs?)
You mean the hidden agenda? Maybe that’s been hidden even from myself! I’ve learnt a whole heap. The first thing, I guess, is that I’m much more normal than I’d realized. When everyone starts exhibiting the truth about themselves ‒ especially the bits that are guarded in RL ‒ I see a bit here and a little bit there and I think, “Yes, there’s a bit of me that’s like that one … and this one too.” Fellow bloggers tend to comment on what they like and leave what they don’t like alone and that is very reassuring and quite wonderful.

I’ve also learnt that I have the capacity to laugh long into the night.

What do I most want to learn? I most want to understand loneliness better.

Q I'll send the third by email
A I’m still waiting for this …..

Thank you for the questions, Romancer!

This is Polly, still Wagging

Your ability to laugh late into the this is interesting. Is this because it is late at night you can chat with us folks on the other side of the world??

And understanding we do have a challenge don't we?? This afternoon a good friend suggested we have the need for just the opposite hard wired into us as human beings.....a desire to reach out and make connections. If this is true it seems loneliness would be the loss of or imagined loss of these same connections.

So it is easy for some of us to medicate ourselves with busy-ness, or food, or the internet, or alcohol, or whatever to forget the loneliness for a while but to do something different with it....that is the challenge isn't it? How does one deal with it differently? Does one just go into it and feel the pain? Will that stop it? I think perhaps I have not come to grips with that myself. But would certainly like to figure it out.....
