2. Skills: I would like to improve my skills in HOW I communicate with others, especially non verbally. I have a habit of not paying attention as to HOW I am saying things, or what my body language is implying. I would like to improve from a 4 to a 7.

3. Relationship: I hope to improve my IC within my friendships and other relationships from a 5 to an 8. (Especially when it comes to explaining my feelings, etc)

22 Yahweh God fashioned the rib he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man.

23 And the man said: This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh! She is to be called Woman, because she was taken from Man.
