In response to prompt : Prefer
I prefer to live in a smaller city,
Where people are friendly and witty.
The air is fresh for us to breathe,
Sun’s heat makes large city seethe.
I like a city where people are happy,
Where kids can spend time with Pappy!
When you’re unwell do you allow others to take care of you , or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?
When I’m not well but can look after myself I take care of myself, I do not like to bother anyone. There have been occasions when I needed help, in those circumstances I do ask for help.
I’ve had “Vertigo ” a few times, it’s something I’m unable to deal with all by myself. All I need then is to have someone near me.
Fortunately I’m generally in good shape. Thankfully I know what is good or not good for me. I follow the rules of good health.
Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it ,or do you prefer to rely only on yourself?
It is easy for me to ask for help from people I know.I try to do it myself first if after struggling for a while I’m unable to do the task I think I can do, I ask for help.
Once I tried hard to open a jar of peanut butter, I kept trying but could not. I went to my next door neighbor to see if she could help. She tried and was not successful, it made me feel better, she let her sister who was visiting try, the sister opened it easily. I thought my neighbor and I loosened it which is why the sister was able to do it without trouble.
There are tasks I find difficult to do, such as mowing the lawn and snow shoveling, I let the professionals take care of it.
If I was kidnapped which one of the choices would I prefer; Would I be stranded on an island, dropped into an unknown forest or locked into a strange building.
Of the three choices I’d prefer to be stranded on an island. To me the other two choices will make me claustrophobic.
I have some experience living on an island. It is open .It is surrounded by water. There is no pollution. I won’t feel trapped. Breathing fresh open air,watching clean flowing water, the sandy shores and unknown vegetation will free me from difficult situations and unpleasant experiences in a closed trapped building or a forest filled with trees, where at any moment some crazy nut will scare the daylights out of me.
On an island there’ll be more things to do. I can easily find foods like assorted berries and when I’m bored with berry picking, I’d try to catch a fish or two.
I think an island is my choice.
