30 questions to get to know yourself

One of my goals for this year is to get to know myself better. I believe that the better you know yourself, the better you can get to know other people.

Theory: If you haven't figured out how to get to know yourself, the person you are with 24 hours a day, then how are you going to get to know other people on a deeper level? Maybe I'm wrong, but for now, that's what I'm going with. So, I'm beginning my own "get to know myself" exercise.

Just click on the question for the link to the post where I answered it.

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
