Can you pick five…?

A friend of mine posted the following questions in a group we are both in. It has taken me exactly 19 days to answer it. I’m not proud that it has taken that long to do so. But I am happy that I have answered it. This kind of self reflection is a needed exercise. After answering it I felt like I needed to dunk my head in ice water just to put out the fire.

4) what insights, if any, do these lists give you about yourself and/or others?
