Sometimes in life, you will have to ask yourself some questions, and sometimes you will have to ask yourself questions about others. Asking yourself questions will acknowledge you know these things are happening and how you want to move forward.
It may give you a realization of character, whether yours or theirs. It may explain what behaviors you exhibit or tolerate.
