Share Your World: January 30, 2021

Is it necessary to trust someone you like? (friends, acquaintances or co-workers with whom you have no familial ties)
It is absolutely necessary to trust a friend. They wouldn’t be a “friend” without it, they would be an acquaintance. It is not necessary to trust an acquaintance or co-worker. It is nice, but not necessary. What is important is to know who you can trust and who you can not.

Do you hold grudges? What do you do when someone really irritates you?
No, I’ve never have been one to hold a grudge. Hiding my irritation and not acting on it are habits I have only been able to foster in the last decade or so. When someone irritates me I avoid them until my irritation has passed. I strive to not do or say anything I have to apologize for. Again, this was not the case when I was younger. But I am a work in progress.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve heard someone say?
When I first began working an older co-worker said to me “It’s nice to be smart but it’s smart to be nice”. I’ve reminded myself of this a million times since then. Too many times, too late.

Is crying a sign of weakness or strength in adults?
I don’t think it is a sign of weakness or strength. What are they crying about?

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?
Dinner (take out) with two of my besties this week. For me, a Greek salad.

  1. Thanks, Dawn for Sharing Your World! That salad looks delicious! It is uplifting to spend time in person with people we know, perhaps all the more so because it’s rare that we can! Great answers and I think your ‘work in progress’ is going very well (it sounds like)! Have a great weekend!
