While this post goes live I'll be in Portugal on my honeymoon with that rather handsome man I call my husband! Jealous? Thank goodness for being able to schedule posts otherwise it would have been complete radio silence over here! I'm sure next week you can expect a few posts all about our holiday so hey, at least you've got something to look forward to. Until then here is this week's questions...

When you meet someone for the very first time what do you want them to think about you?
If I met someone for the first time in a large group I think that I probably come across as a bit standoffish or rude which is not the impression I want to give at all. My anxiety normally kicks in and I become quiet, shy and not very vocal in conversations. I do hope that people recognise that I am just an introvert and don't judge me too harshly!

Who would you like to forgive?
Currently, no one. I'm not very good at holding grudges unless you have massively wronged me or my loved ones. If I have fallen out with you or you have done something that upsets me it is likely that I will forgive you within just a couple of days. 

At what point during the last five years have you felt lost and alone?
I've been having a bit of a battle with this lately. I simply struggle to work out where I am going with my life in the grand scheme of things and I always feel alone if I don't have human company, especially my husband's. I guess you could say I'm a bit needy like that! 

What is one opportunity you believe you missed out on when you were younger?
I'm sure growing up there were plenty of things that I wish I could have done or wanted to have but I don't think I necessarily missed out on any real opportunities. I suppose I missed out on quite a lot of socialising in my teens due to my anxiety. I didn't realise that's what  it was back then so I was unable to control it or get any help. It's something I still struggle with today.

What do you want more of in your life?
Happy times and wonderful people. I don't think you can ever get enough happiness or amazing people in your life and I'm always happy to make space for more. 

What do you want less of in your life?
Stress. I don't want as much stress in my life and I wish I was a bit less fearful of certain things too. I'm going to work really hard on sorting this out.

Who depends on you?
I don't know if anyone depends on me. I know that certain people (my husband, family and best friend) like having me around but I don't know that they necessarily depend on me.

How would you answer these questions?

** Inspiration for this series came from Underland to Wonderland's Weekly Wonderings which also asks the same 365 questions found on this post on  Mark and Angel Hack Life.

  1. Can't wait to hear all about your holiday, hope you're enjoying yourself!

    I get quite lonely without Kris's company, he's the only person that I will willingly hang around with for days on end :)

    1. Yeah, I'm the same with the husband. I really love spending days on end with him. It never gets boring or annoying!

  2. Joe always says I miss out of loads of stuff growing up - both a mix of growing up in the UK and growing up in the countryside - which I hated. Cinema, swimming pools, shops, they were all a good 20 odd miles away. I had over protective parents too, so I was never allowed to go to sleep overs or festivals or things like that. I know they probably thought they meant well, but it never helped our relationship and still doesn't.

    1. And now you live in America! Haha. I was the one in my group of friends that was probably allowed to do the least. I couldn't go out as much as the others to all the different parties, sleepovers and days out but I still was able to do plenty. Although back then sometimes it felt like I wasn't allowed to do anything.
