About three weeks ago or so, I put out a call for ideas that I could use on my blog. Last week, a very good friend of mine was dealing with a particularly thorny issue and wanted to ask my opinion on certain generalities surrounding it (not the issue itself because my friend is very private about her life and above all else, I do not try to pry into things that she clearly does not want to elaborate on because I respect her that much as a person), so she posed a series of questions about it.
After we had a brief but highly animated conversation about those questions, it was decided by mutual agreement that I should pose these questions to my regular and casual blog readers. So my friends, here are the questions that my good friend asked me and wanted my opinion on. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get that much in depth about them beyond expressing my very personal opinion about why she asked the questions in the first place. But I will try to answer a few of them in the comment section of this post.
The questions are:
1} How far would you go to save a good friend's life?
2} Would it be based on what you think they may do if the roles were reversed?
3} Would it be based on selfishness?
4} Would it be based on pure unconditionality?
5} How much of yourself would you give?
6} Would you expect something in return?
Feel free to answer as many as you feel comfortable with. And if you want to have some kind of lengthy conversation about it, by all means check back here frequently. Today is Columbus Day, so I will be on and off the computer all day long, and thus updating the comment section as much as possible.
