4. What was the best phase/worst phase in your life?
Worst would have to be in two phases - 13-19 years old and from 25-35. Damage was caused to me in the former and the repercussions of this were felt from my mid 20s to mid 30s. My best phase has definitely been in my late thirties onwards. It is hard to undo self-destructive habits, but with miles on the clock and a certain amount of retrospection, I have ironed out a lot of problems. I would like to think that emotionally, mentally and spiritually, I am a late bloomer :-)
