QUESTIONS This week is a philosophical (chewy) question week.
In your opinion, what should be humanity’s goal?
To slow down the damage we are doing to the earth with our reliance on plastic. There has to be a way to help the environment. I had a Chinese Take-away today, and it was all in plastic containers. If there were a way of taking them back to the shops so they could be re-used. The same with plastic milk bottles. If there was a place you could take the empties back to, so the manufacturer could use them again, rather than them going into the ocean.
Are you hesitant to speak your opinions?
I’m scared to speak my opinions.
In what ways has society changed during your lifetime? What do you think caused these changes?
We played outside more, and there was less pressure on us to be perfect. Now teenagers have social media, where they think they see other people’s perfect lives. We met with friends, walked to town, and were able to make our mistakes in private.
If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?
Probably not, I’m much kinder about other people’s mistakes than my own.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
I am grateful for my family, they have always been there for me. I love them so much, they give me inspiration to be the best version of myself. All the kindness I show others I have learnt off them. I am also grateful for my granddaughter, she gives me a reason to smile and I will protect her always.
