Not too proud

How often do you ask for help?

The reason I ask is that whilst I can be pretty bloody minded at times, I am always more than happy to ask people questions.

I truly don’t understand the mindset of those that just presume they are smart enough to be able to get through something without additional help. I include searching the internet in that statement as well for, despite the fact you need to carefully vet the information you find there (here?), it is a good source of useful information and answers.

And yes, it does seem to be a guy thing, doesn’t it?

I sometimes wonder if the reason I don’t fully understand that way of thinking is because… and please, hear me out… is because of my star sign. I’m a Libra.

Now I’m not saying that’s the main reason, I presume that at some point in the past I’ve read up about what Librans are supposed to be like and that has matched with the fact that I do find myself able to see both sides of the story and that I do believe that balance should be saught in most situations.

So no, I don’t understand the mindset of those peacock proud guys who strut around and presume that they know best, and yes, I’m self-aware enough to know that, whilst I can play along with the “alpha male” thing when I need to, I have a little more emotional range than a lot of guys. I’m very happy with my feminine side.

And with all that in mind, my dear blog reader, I have a question for you.

What on earth should I write about next?

    You should write absolutely nothing until something weighty places itself on your scales and unbalances you to such an extent that you can’t function without getting it down into words.

    That’s probably a typical Scorpio response 🙂

    Here is the Libran answer on the one hand you could wait for a ‘happening’ but on the other hand you could just sit there and torment yourself. On the ‘third’ hand leave it till tomorrow. That is what Librans do best.

    Are there any England flags flying in Scotland today? No… wait, that would be too short a blog post… 😉

    Blue Witch – “Yes, there is”. Yup, too short.

    I don’t believe in the entire horoscopes thing. But then as a Scorpio I would say that. 😉

    I do ask for help when it’s something I know nowt about, and/or don’t understand. I don’t have a problem with the phrase “I don’t know” – something which doesn’t always seem to be true with others.

    Well, the post was one letter longer than I expected 😉
