I think the Brit in me tends to apologise for everything anyway! A habit I am trying to break... But if I really had to choose between the two, it would probably still be the former. I'd just be too wracked with guilt otherwise! Plus, when done right, there is something quite empowering about taking responsibility for your part in an issue, however small it is. So my caveat to this moral dilemma is to apologise for my specific part in everything. Done!
Definitely longing. As an optimist (most of the time) my longings typically come with a good dose of hope. Having said that, I have experienced the more tormented kind of longing as well, where something you want desperately feels painfully out of reach, and I suppose 'permanent longing' means it would be forever out of reach... Hmm... Still, permanent guilt sounds awful. Would apologising for everything help absolve it, I wonder?!
This would really depend on the secret, and the consequences. I generally go with 'honesty is the best policy', but I suppose there are secrets out there that would be so damaging if exposed that I'd really wonder if it was worth it. PLUS I'd have to give up my passion as a coach since I'd be breaching client confidentiality, which would really suck. OK then, secrecy it is!
Oh man, now there's a tough one... I'm watching the TV show Weeds these days, so my point of reference is, "Would I snitch on the drug-dealing love-of-my-life knowing that I'd lose him"? VERY tricky. I am stumped. Will toss a coin: heads for morals, tails for love... Heads!!! Argh!! Wait, if I marry this guy aren't we protected by spousal testimonial privilege?!
In my 20s I would have said 'heart' without much thought (ha!). These days, I'm trying to balance my 'heart' with being 'smart'... But if I had to choose between one or the other... I guess I still believe that there's a lot of wisdom in love, a lot of intuition in desire, and a lot of insight in compassion...
