Premarital counseling questions typically include ideas about spirituality, religion, finances, culture, blended families, compatibility and identity. One’s sense of identity directly affects that person’s ideas of compatibility. The reality is we’re unique and at our core we’re the same, we all want happiness, intimacy, and fulfillment in life.
Premarital counseling questions surface many deeply ingrained and cherished beliefs about who we are. But are these images real or a veneer? Yes, you are aware of what you do, what you say, and how you respond to others. But do you honestly observe your thoughts and your feelings? If you believe you are a good, loyal friend to someone you have known for years, do you respond with kindness and support, or do you criticize and avoid them? How do you treat yourself? Are you overly critical, do you overly value yourself, are you controlling, are you a people pleaser, or do you see yourself as you truly are? Honest self-appraisal is difficult habit to implement, you’re likely to delude yourself unintentionally about who you truly are and the true reasons for your habits. This makes it difficult to accomplish your greatest goals.
Marriage counseling questions can help you find out who you truly are by encouraging you see yourself in a more expansive way. Having the courage to try things when you may fail is scary, but will teach you what you are good and not so good at and provide you with clarity about who you are, how to change, and how to be true to yourself. You’ll learn what you want rather than what others around you want. You’ll open yourself to the opportunity to develop your strengths and passions and find others to help you on your life journey. The peace and self-confidence of being self-aware can be yours.
