QUESTIONS FOR SELF REFLECTION:

  • How much do you feel connected to others?  Do you smile at people as you walk by?
  • What relationships in your life require healing?
  • Have you allowed yourself to be controlled by the wounds of another?  Will you let that happen again?
  • What is your understanding of forgiveness?
  • What fears do you have about being emotionally healthy?
  • When was the last time you truly felt that “spark” or a deep connection with someone?  Look back at the time and see if you can find the special things about that person or situation that made you feel that way.
    • Do you judge others?  Or are you compassionate?  Do you accept others for who they are?
