Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole? (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.)

I’m actually finding it impossible to answer this question. Being a super nice depressed person serves the general public but would make me and my family miserable. Being happy but a total *sshole leaves room for joy but screws the general public. Aaarrrggghhhh! I am literally unable to choose between these options.

Have you ever made someone cry?

Yes. It wasn’t a good feeling.

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter?

If I had to pick one I’d say a dreamer. Once I zero in on something I’m pretty dogged about getting there but a lot falls into the daydreaming category for me.

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play?

Definitely guitar. This would require a magical download of instrumental knowledge into my very-non-musical-instrument brain, though.

Do you feel gratitude is necessary? 

Absolutely. Without gratitude we run the risk of falling prey to entitlement or selfishness. Gratitude gives us a healthy perspective on life’s blessings and challenges.
