Small fish, big pond.

A big fish soon finds his surroundings too cramped, by his own size….and too lonely, when the little ones all decide to seek bigger ponds.

I like the freedom to ‘swim around’....
Small fish for me thanks.

I’ve been in both situations. I want my own pond all to myself.

MacB…...I’ve got a wading pool. It’s all yours, if you want it!

Small fish in big pond…..although it’s kinda nice when you find a little corner of the pond where “everybody knows your name”...

Small fish in a big pond with the option to grow.

I don’t want to be a fish. Can I be a small cat in a big house?

How in the world did I, of all creatures, miss this question?!

I’ll take option 3 – one that you did not list – and be a big fish in a big pond. When you’re a big fish in a small pond, everyone thinks you’re a bully. When you’re a small fish in a big pond, either no one notices you, or you have to be afraid all of the time. I’d rather be big enough to take care of myself, and swim in an ocean that has enough room for everyone.

I prefer a versatile situation where I can be fishes of different sizes at different times. Imperfectly worded but, dear Fluther-mates, you get the idea.
