I have hit a stone wall with today’s prompt.

I don’t understand how to answer the question.

I think having values and standards is just something that happens and improves or unimproves as we go through life.

Showing compassion? I think it’s either in me or not.

Sympathetic? It’s either in me or not.

Rolling up the sleeves and helping rather than talking about helping? It’s either in me or not.

Sometimes I wish I were one way or the other but it never amounts to more than wishes. The early years form the values of a person. Isn’t there a proverb, “Show me the child and I’ll show you the man.” I believe that to be true.

So I guess most of us here are past the child stage. And by now, we are what we are!

It is probably a good question because it is so hard to answer. I guess the code I try to stick to is to remind people how special we are incase nobody ever told us.

We are not just a number. We are special. That’s my code, I guess.

See, I got there in the end!

Thank you for reading
