One of the most interesting parts of the evening was when we talked about the pivot points in our lives, many of which occurred when our plans for our lives didn't work out (Question 7). We decided that the pivot points can feel either positive or negative, pleasant or unpleasant, and yet either type of pivot point can result in either expanding our choices in life and our thoughts about what the universe can provide for us, or reducing them.
We also commented about how it's sometimes wise to conceal our true emotions (Question 2) when we're around people who aren't interested in hearing them or who might use that information against us. Nevertheless, we can also conceal our true emotions from people who really need to know how we feel, like lovers and family, and that can result in our giving up parts of ourselves in order to appease others, which makes us shut down and become less true to ourselves (Question 4).
