Porcupines Live Alone

One of the lessons I learned while attending Weber State University came in one of my Family Studies classes taught by Dr. Randy Chatelain. It's no wonder I switched my major from Psychology to Family Studies after taking this class.

Did you know that porcupines live alone? They are very solitary animals. We can learn a valuable lesson from them. Imagine the porcupine as a person. What kind of person would it be? I imagine it would be a prickly, stand-offish person. Maybe a grump, maybe someone who easily offends others. It is the kind of person others don't enjoy being around.

Are we porcupines? Do we get grumpy and offensive too easily? Or are we soft and warm toward our families? It makes all the difference. After all, porcupines live alone.


  1. Wow! What a great thought! That is so totally true. I really can be a porcupine sometimes, so thanks for the reminder. Your site looks great! Keep up the good work, Melanie!
