It’s a difficult question to answer and an uncomfortable topic to speak about, but it can illuminate much about your emotional health and the challenges you are dealing with, especially the invisible ones. This is the question: do you invest more time and energy in fighting demons or in spreading light? Which feelings do you identify with most: fear, anger, envy, disappointment, despondence, pessimism, apathy, resignation, lethargy, or optimism, hope, enthusiasm, happiness, gratitude, fulfillment, passion? When faced with a new possible relationship is your knee jerk reaction tentativeness and fear, or eagerness and excitement? Do you wake up in the morning happy or sad? What is your predominant mood: good or bad? What energy do you exude most: positive or negative?
