What do I imagine they will say?

Whenever someone says I need to talk with you, or can I ask you a personal question?, or something along those lines, it is a good opportunity to notice where my mind goes.

What am I most afraid she or he will ask me?

Which question would be most embarrassing?

And whatever comes up here is a good pointer to where I have hangups, where there is still a blind identification with certain roles and stories. It is good to notice, and whatever comes up is something I can take to inquiry.
