As the year draws ever closer to a close and the holidays approach, this time of year is often one of reflection as well as celebration.
Keeping the reflective theme in mind, what we want to know this week is:
When do you feel happiest in your skin? I feel the happiest when I am going to the gym, walking, eating healthy and having fun with my Daddy (sex and play)
How do you maintain balance in your life? Is there anything you need to change? Balance is something new I am learning to do. I am understanding my limits, my boundaries and what is best for me and my exchanges with others. By doing this, I am reminding myself to think over things before acting and going to counseling on a weekly basis.
What has been a particularly challenging situation that you have faced? How did you handle it? What did you learn from it? The particularly challenging situation this year has been learning how to communicate with both family and friends, realizing what I need to make me happy (even if it doesn’t make others happy) and dealing with things differently than I have before. It is making me a better person and I feel better in myself for it.
What does it mean to live authentically? To live authentically is to respect yourself and do things even if it makes others uncomfortable or questioning. You have to be happy in you and be true to yourself, be authentic in you and who you are.
What are the things that inspire you and how do they work for you? The things that inspire me is writing, music and those around me. It helps me deal with my issues and in understanding myself and others.
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be? If I could change something about myself, it would be to be true to me at all times. To be sensitive but to not let it overtake who and what I am. To actually be that authentic me better.
