238/444 Healing from Infidelity: Emotional Intimacy 15, Reveal Yourself

One of the ways to reveal who you are and how you became that way is to talk about yourself. Deep down, we all want to reveal who we are, and we all want to be known by someone who loves us and accepts us unconditionally. Take turns talking about YOU for 10 (or 20) minutes nonstop. Use the following topics as suggestions to get you started, or think of your own. (List adapted from Torn Asunder)
