It is a privilege to curate for #MSP-Curation every Saturday as a part of the @Minnowsupport initiative. "Peace, Abundance, Liberty" is the motto of PAL, which supports all Hive users, but notably the minnows.
And what a wonderful opportunity to pick five articles from Ladies of Hive, which is my main focus! Ladies of Hive is a community of women empowering each other both on the blockchain and in Discord! A place we love and where Hive is alive.
For this week, the ladies were ask:
1️⃣ Do you believe in lifelong fidelity?
~ 𝐀𝐍𝐃 / 𝐎𝐑 ~
2️⃣ Which would you prefer: to be able to see the future or to be able to see the past?
Regarding fidelity, no, I do not think it is forever, first because we are all human and we make mistakes, for me to be faithful is to be faithful in body and soul, and certainly if it is not for one is for the other that falls, and it does not focus it only towards men also as a woman we commit some infidelity speaking with respect to couples, not everything is complete and there will always be the temptation, no matter how much you love, no matter how much you want to be with that person all your life, there is always a slip, something that takes us away from it for a moment and ruins that fidelity that should be maintained, as well as fidelity to feelings, to oneself, to God, we promise to be faithful to it and a thousand things can happen that make us change it, life takes many turns and you do not know what you will face that can change everything in an instant.
Seeing ahead gives me more power to shape my direction. It helps me set smarter goals with an eye on what challenges or openings are emerging over my personal horizon. I can course correct easier if I know I'm headed the wrong way towards a pitfall down the road. It's like having a map to lifelines and pitfalls before reaching them.
Meanwhile, seeing only the past doesn't help me alter my future in any concrete way. I may gain insight into how my previous choices rippled into today’s reality. But the past can’t be changed, only learned from. Peeks at history feel less actionable or empowering when aiming to intentionally build my life. They provide context, but no clear path ahead.
Generally speaking, as I am a romantic, I do believe that there are people and relationships where there is fidelity for life, I like to believe in this. But since I have never lived it, I did not apply it to me. Of course, when you start a love relationship you go with all the illusion in the world that this time everything will go very well and I wish it would always happen that way, but I think that in these times it is increasingly difficult to maintain fidelity. However, you also have to see and discuss with your partner the limits of what each of you defines as fidelity or not and reach a common agreement in the relationship. The key will always be communication, if everything is discussed it is easier. That is why this is an important pillar in every relationship. So well, this is my opinion on this subject.
My mother always told me, an unfaithful person is a person who does not know how to value himself, as long as you do not learn to accept your mistakes and understand the mistakes of others and try to grow in communion, there will never be a safe and stable relationship. If there are no feelings involved, it is better to talk about it than to commit acts that hurt the other person even more, that is why there is freedom of expression.
Fidelity, from my perception, is the loyalty and commitment that a person possesses towards someone else and towards oneself; it is an ability and virtue to fulfill promises, feelings, ideas or obligations for which one has become responsible.
I would rather see the future, I have many advantages to that, though it has its disadvantages too but my preference will be seeing the future.
Choosing to see the future could give opportunities for preparedness and even a sense of control. It might enable me to predict and handle future difficulties or take advantage of favorable circumstances. However, Forecasting the future may also deprive one of life's surprises, freedom, and educational opportunities.
On the other hand, Choosing to see the past could offer meaningful perspectives, enlightening lessons, and a deeper understanding of the events that have affected my life. By thinking back on previous occurrences, one can enhance personal growth and make more informed decisions. However, dwelling over the past too much could hinder development and make it difficult for someone to move on.
