Let’s Play 20 Questions!

These are powerful questions that I found from a mental health blog on PsychCentral.* They can help us pause and really get to know each other. Some questions might seem simple or silly but they are intended to make you think and touch your heart. You can journal these questions or you can explore them with a friend or with your significant other. Here are the 20 questions and my answers to them so I can connect with you. Fell free to copy & paste in the comments so I may know my readers.
