Choose one: Being alone on an island for the rest of your life, or stuck in an overpopulated city?
I'll take the Island with wifi please . Seriously, I lived in the city and I just couldn't deal with that again - the constant noise, the air pollution etc. I would rather live on an island (only with my family).
Though I am comfortable being alone, I would have to go with being stuck in an overpopulated city. First, I think I have something to offer people. I am an encourager -- I try to show people that they can have hope. I try to inspire; I try to motivate; and I try to teach. Second, there is a lot that I learn from others. I discover more about myself when I'm with other people than I do when I'm alone (e.g., traits of impatience, selfishness, or pettiness are easier to identify when I'm around others). For me to make effective use of any ability I have, and for me to personally grow, I think I need to be around people.
I would choose the " aloneness".
I have seen far too much of the " hustle and bustle".......for a lifetime........just let me be myself.
If I have to choose one, I really do not want to be alone for the rest of my life - so I guess the over populated city.
If I could have my family, then the island would be just fine.
Can't survive being alone. Will go mad. I would choose the overpopulated city, where I am free to contact my near and dear ones any time of the day. The reason why I love hubpages is its wonderful community.
I would loath living in an overpopulated city and eventually, isolationism on an island would drive me mad. On an island there would be no one to interact with and therefore, I would reluctantly choose the city.
Stuck in an over populated city because it would be to boring on an Island all by myself.
I am a creature of comfort so I will choose the city. On an island I would have to find or grow my own food and provide my own shelter. I would rather have companionship. You can always go inside your home to get away from the masses but on an island there would be no one to talk to.
If I had really had to choose, I would say the island, because I hate crowded places. Although, I'd probably end up going mad; I could always find a coconut and carve a smiley face into it or start talking to the trees.
