Is Corona still a public topic in your country?

Why is it less ridiculous to believe in god than in astrology?

Is it? I'm not really in the loop of what people consider more ridiculous or not, to me it either makes sense logically or it lines up with my experiences and personality somewhat. Which is what I had found interesting about astrology in the past, that it seemed to have some accuracy when getting a chart done.

If people resonate with something and makes them want to live and improve, I'm all for it. Life can be very confusing without a core belief system. Some kind of foundation that can sit solid to grow from. I don't think it has to mean people can't be logical AND believe in either one of those. Whether it be gods, a [...]

What are some pros and cons of having a partner?

I suppose the pros are being supported? Otherwise I don't know what the point is. Maybe learn or grow from them. Cons, dealing with the highs and lows I assume. I actually haven't had a partner before though

What are the beauty standards for your area, region, state, or part of the world? Are they more homogeneous or heterogeneous? Elaborate.

No idea tbh, I just see what I like and enjoy it for what it is. There's a part of me that sees appearance and can be attracted but I do believe that just about anyone can look appealing with the right style. Then there's the personality and I think emotions can show through to some extent which also adds to appearance.

Long story short, I think I gotta get more involved with other perspectives 😆

Does the past determine the future?

I don't think so. If there's a negative cycle repeating, there's some tough issues to overcome but it can be overcome. It's just not easy and we can feel up against the wall more often than not, until something might come up that reminds us we're changing still, even if we do nothing

How do you usually react to contact?

Little bit of confusion depending if it's normal, followed by adjusting to it. If it's out of the blue I'll give pause and be unsure how to react to it.

If you could feel good all the time, or be able to look into people's bodies and visually see their emotional mechanics, which would you choose?

Maybe some stubborn part of me just wants to reject the offer of either one. If I deserve it or want it, I'll have to put in the effort for it. Even though I say that, I've been critically low on energy before to feel like I can't do much more than get up out of bed for the day and do what's out of habit. But I have a way for energy now, now it's just pushing for the improvements and in what direction. Never give up, we may fall but never give up. Sometimes I just repeat that to myself in my head.

I think both are possible, the emotional mechanics one is just difficult to pinpoint and grow to be able to read that well. The [...]

When you have lost trust in someone, what must they do to regain that trust?

If I see they're changing or their will to change is consistent. But before that, I gotta separate experiences I've had with each person and trust them based on their merits and who they are. When the negatives start manifesting in other relationships that's probably a sign it's not healthy at all and by that point it's no longer about one person but on how I'm affected by it, funnelling through every other relationship I have.

So really, I trust people too much and not enough. I believe in people and their experiences and that they have a right to express the way they view things through their view, if someone can't express [...]

🎫 Spill your heart about anything you'd like. This is your free pass.

Hmm, I was once full of any and negativity with nothing else left. About a year and a half ago I entered the mental health system here in Australia to recover my mental health.

I'm glad that I have my disposition of calm, it's gotten me through everything really, and it seems to help others in some way without me even realising it. A year and a half years on, I'm into divination and testing out spellcasting after finding a book on spellcrafting. It's a lot to do with intention and energy, then taking action towards it, allowing the spell to manifest. I just cast them on myself.

Thought I might as well answer properly 😁. [...]

What's the hardest thing to cope?

Loss or grief. Perhaps rage. Disappointment. Rock borrom with nowhere to go.

The good thing with rock bottom though is, that can be a new beginning, as for the others that can go on and on, and even build up to intolerable levels. But I'd venture to say even that has limits before shutting off or going numb, but that can then be worked with too. As opposed to plummeting without knowing when it'll stop. Perhaps the plummeting is as far as how strong of a moral or value of ours that's being tested or strained before it snaps and collapses.

I would say the hardest thing to cope with is a relationship of any kind that we [...]

What is a true waste?

I would say energy but it never goes nowhere, I believe energy and effort does count for something even if it manifests in unexpected ways. As for answering the question, time not spent doing our best

What’s the strangest gift you’ve ever received? (Someone once gave me a fire extinguisher for my birthday.)

A torch I suppose, because my brother is into torches, high quality ones too, since he goes camping sometimes
