Write about what kinds of tests you’ve faced and the obstacles you’ve had to overcome (physical, psychological, human, animal) who wanted to stop your progress? Who could you trust? Who was your enemy? When have you undergone a time of testing, where you learned more about yourself, your enemies and your allies? Were the obstacles that crossed your path physical, psychological or human? Take some time to reflect on the obstacles you have faced and the testing that you’ve gone through where you’ve confronted your fears and doubts. How did that process help you own your identity and character in ways you never have before?
When have you stepped out of your comfort zone into an unknown world? Was it the day you went to high school? The day you got married? The day you started a new job? Were you like Doris, uncertain of the outcome, but stepped out anyway? Write about how you crossed your threshold.
“And in their teeny tiny voices, they said, “We’re afraid of the outside world! We don’t want to live alone anymore. We all want to live together here with you!”
