Questions for my Readers: Would You Rather?

What’s worse: being completely alone or feeling completely alone in a place filled with people?

Which tragic romance would you rather endure? Romeo and Juliet or Pip and Estella?

What’s worse: Having everyone think you’re insane when you’re not or going insane but nobody believes you?

Would you rather take a chance and have it blow up in your face or live your life wondering what could’ve been?

If you had to live in an empty city for a whole day, which would you choose? New York City, Los Angeles, or your hometown? I guess what I’m asking is: where would you feel the most at peace?

Would you rather move to a new city every year and start over or live in the same place for the rest of your life?

    1. I’m not sure about my answers to the other questions, but I think I would pick Romeo and Juliet too because they died together and knowing how much they both loved each other

  2. What’s worse:
    Having borderline personality disorder, so feeling desperately alone and empty regardless of who you’re surrounded by or how close you are to them. Standing next to family you’ve known your entire life and feeling scared shitless because you have no idea who they are anymore.

    Which tragic romance would you rather endure?
    R&J. At least I get to die at the end in the arms of the one I love. Even if I feel P&E is more realistic for the modern day and age.

    What’s worse:
    I’ve had both experiences. The latter is definitely a more terrifying and alienating experience; with the former your “insanity” provides some much-appreciated stability to how you see yourself in the frame of your immediate world. It gives you something to go off of. If you want to experience the terror of actually going insane (and having people not understand or believe what you’re experiencing), trip on powerful psychedelics in an unfamiliar setting and make sure they interact with an existing medication you’re on. You’ll spend the next 12 hours trapped in a mind-bending loop trying to remember who you are, how you got there, what year it is, and why you’re so desperately confused. People will try to talk to you and ask you questions and you will sit there in a catatonic stupor, terrified and yet locked in your shuddering body while fear and delirium envelope you.

    Would you rather take a chance and have it blow up in your face or live your life wondering what could’ve been?
    Again, I’ve been in both situations, and if it’s something that you feel is important to you, it’s better to take the chance. Unanswered questions of “what could’ve been” are like bedbugs, they will follow you to the ends of the Earth sucking your blood and living amongst you, quietly breeding and multiplying every time you brood.

    If you had to live in an empty city for a whole day, which would you choose? New York City, Los Angeles, or your hometown? I guess what I’m asking is: where would you feel the most at peace?
    Reykjavík, Iceland. I’ve never been there but it’s supposedly a place of incredible beauty. Oh and stars. Stars and the Northern Lights.

    Would you rather move to a new city every year and start over or live in the same place for the rest of your life?
    New city, please. There’s so much cultural richness, incredible diversity, so many varied sights, sounds, and tastes in this world and you’re fortunate to have experienced even a fraction of it by the time your card gets called. You wonder why so many on their deathbeds speak of their regrets of spending so much time at the office; then it all makes sense.
