Thanks to Facebook, I know what sort of pizza I am, what my mental age is according to the sundae I put together, and which Disney Prince I am meant to marry. But I do know myself, all the light and darkness of my fears and hopes. While talking to a friend yesterday about self-awareness, I suggested that therapy helps you know who you are and I think that often people don't pursue therapy because they don't like what they see in themselves. So how about we do a quiz. The therapy quiz to help you find out about yourself. I will put my answers down to show you it's not so hard and then you can do yours. you don't have to share it with anyone, but it is a great step to understanding your fine self.
