- Am I a hard friend to hold on to because I tend to hermit? Or do my friends just all have their own, busy lives that they are leading and have little time to spend with me?
- Do I expect too much from my family? Or not enough?
- Is my pain really that bad today? Or could I manage a small painting?

And as far as parenting goes, I've gone both ways with my son; I've retracted punishments in favor of a more reasonable approach, and I've also stood my ground on certain matters. I'm sure that's not good parenting, but I do the best I can do.
Does anyone else ever grapple with riding the line between what you think is appropriate and right? And how does intuition fit in? Can you favor intuition too much to the point that it becomes somewhat paranoid?
