  • Great questions. While I can see the merit of asking yourself each of them, I also see the benefit of asking your spouse to answer them on your behalf. This way, you can see how the world percieves you.

    • It is interesting to know how other perceives us, but I think is also important to not get too wrapped up in other´s perception. I do however found it very stimulating to ask my partner these questions, just to know his posture. But after all these are your questions now, so feel free to use them and ask them to whomever you want. Enjoy!
