Questions to get to know me better. Part 1

27 Mar

Here are 45 questions to help you get to know your loved ones a whole lot better and bolster your bond. Be sure to follow up each question with “Why?”

  1. What’s something about yourself that you hope will never change?

My resilience, perseverance and determination when dealing with mental illness on a daily basis.  I really fear getting to that point where I just give up.

  1. What books have you read that’ve had a big influence on you?

Mostly psychology books.  I really liked New Hope for Borderline Personality Disorder, the DSM, the PDR, the It gets better project book, and a book on schizoaffective.  I read a lot of books on psychology topics because I believe knowledge is power, and I need all the power I can get.

  1. What goals have you recently set for yourself? How are you doing with these goals so far?

I ended up self harming earlier in the month, so my goal is to stop self harming again.  My New Year Resolutions were to brush my teeth, go for at least a 10 minute walk, and 3 dates within 3 months.  I’ve been doing pretty good on the walking and brushing my teeth, I don’t do it everyday but a lot more than I use to.  I was going out with the ex so I already had 3 dates, but I have one with a new girl from the dating site this Saturday.

  1. What strange habit do you have?

I have a lot of strange habits.  Probably one people think most weird is that I don’t like getting my hands wet, so I don’t wash my hands, put lotion on, or like people to touch my hands.

  1. What do you think is your best quality?

My thoughtfulness.  I’m always trying to make people’s day and show them how important they are to me.

  1. What fear would you like to overcome?

My fear of abandonment.  It’s probably the most intense fear I have and it effects me a lot and my relationships.

  1. What person, dead or alive, do you wish you could be more like?

Anyone happier than me, I’d say yesterday or Wednesday.  But most days I’m okay with being myself I think I’m a very unique person who has had a lot of unique life experiences.

  1. Growing up, what was your favorite children’s story or fairy tale?

I don’t really remember my childhood but I use to love to watch The Little Mermaid and sing the songs.

  1. What’s your favorite poem or saying?

“If you can’t convince them, confuse them.”  “Without sadness there can be no empathy.”

  1. What’s one of your greatest accomplishments?

No self harming for over 2 years, up until just recently.  Completing a 1/2 marathon.  Staying alive through all life has thrown at me and not making a serious suicide attempt.

I'l love to hear your thoughts
