So You Know

So you know

It’s that time again for So You Know (SYK) over on Revenge of Eve.

This week’s questions are:

  1. Do you see a therapist? If so, how does doing so influence your life?
  2. What is your favorite part of adulthood? Your least favorite (besides bills)?
  3. Are the government officials of your country trustworthy?
  4. How important, scale of 1-10, are leprechauns in the evolution of humans? 1-of least importance 10-required

 

My answers:

1. Do you see a therapist? If so, how does doing so influence your life? – No, I don’t.  I haven’t had much luck in the past finding a therapist that was a good fit, so I’ve chosen to do my own work drawing on concepts from a mix of different therapy models I’m familiar with.

2. What is your favorite part of adulthood? Your least favorite (besides bills)?  –  I think I’m sufficiently old and crotchety that adulting is really the only thing within my frame of reference.  Even when I’ve been in relationships previously, I was the most responsible adult.  I suppose what I like best about being an adult is the independence.  I’m not sure I have a least favourite, because I doubt there’s anything that I’d be willing to sacrifice my independence for,

3. Are the government officials of your country trustworthy? – I’m not sure that government officials anywhere are entirely trustworthy.  Humans are fallible, and if we get lulled into complacency expecting people to always do the right thing, that’s probably not going to serve us very well.  That being said, compared to all the lying going on down south with the Great Pumpkin and his White House, Canada is pretty tame.

4. How important, scale of 1-10, are leprechauns in the evolution of humans? 1-of least importance 10-required – Well, if we consider a leprechaun to be the founder of Froot Loops cereal, said leprechaun would be contributing to diabetes and therefore would not be helpful to the evolution of humans.

    I love Lucky Charms!! Oh my goodness! Best cereal ever, and you’re right–if not for leprechauns, we wouldn’t have Lucky Charms!! 😮 Scary thought!

    Anti-therapists unite! I love self-help books and a lot of other therapeutic stuff as well!!

        Oh my!! Now that I think back, I’m not sure my parents did, either. I always ate them when I’d visit Granny Franny!!

        You should go out and buy some!! Yummy!! You haven’t lived yet! 😀

    I don’t like the responsibility of adulthood and the fact that I’m the one who has to make choices. It often makes me scared. Great Pumpkin hahah I had to laugh 😂

      I think for me it makes a difference that my illness didn’t show up until my late 20s, so I had already gotten used to the responsibilities of adulthood when I was fully well.

    I agree you on the people’s reliance on the government to do the right thing. If maybe people weren’t so reliant on that belief perhaps the government would work better for the people.
