Question of the Week - 7
This week's questions comes from Joe.
Joe asks, "What is your personal vision of Hell?"
While it is quite infamous how much dogs freak me out, my personal vision of Hell is that of a place specifically forged to capitalize on your greatest failures in life. For one, it might be reliving the day you could have made the difference in a friend's life but instead chose to be selfish. For another, it might standing in front of the crowd once again and hearing everyone boo as you mention the wrong answer for the nth time in a game show. Hell, in my opinion, is not about fire and brimstone (although it may be for some people). Hell is about having the most terrible and painful moment in your life stretch on and on forever. Hell may be quiet. Or cold. Or filled with animals you absolutely hate. Or with dark clouds or rays of sunlight. It may be at an island, a classroom, a mountain peak. It may center on an unanswered phone, wilting flowers, uncovered lies, or the death of a loved one.
Hell is the worst made forever.
And sadly, some already feel they're living in Hell every day of their lives.
"Which do you think is more overrated, honesty or kindness? and Why?"
I remain stoic in the belief that honesty is truly a virtue we should all strive for daily. Kindness is greatly over-rated. Far too many people state kindness as a reason to lie, deceive, abuse, abandon, and destroy. Too easily many believe it would be better to hide the truth and let the others know only what they must. But I personally feel as a human being, we deserve to know what we should. If I were in a sinking ship in the middle of the Atlantic, I would rather be told the truth that it is sinking than be kindly told all is well and to just head for bed and sleep (and maybe die in silence while I slumber). I deserve that level of respect for my personal rights.
Consider more how much respect a friend deserves.
So yeah, kindness is overrated. We need honesty, baby.
And we deserve it.
