It has been a while since my last post. Safe to say…I am still here, I haven’t disappeared off the face of the earth. Although, I am not saying that I didn’t want that. I am still struggling. I heard that the Melancholy Temperament is the only temperament that wishes that they could change temperaments. I can attest to that thought. I often find myself saying why me? I know that I should not question God, but sometimes it’s hard to resist. I have to tell myself positive affirmations 3 times a day (with the help of my children reminding me). Some of things that I keep telling myself are:
- I am worthy to be loved
- I forgive myself for whatever past mistakes I have made
- God loves me no matter what
As a Melancholy I have to keep telling myself positive thoughts, because if I don’t I will fall even deeper into the blackness of Hell…called depression.
If you are curious about your temperaments, here is a couple of sites where you can test yourself online. My husband and I were tested at our church by our minister. If you have a minister who is also a certified counselor, ask him about temperament testing, if you don’t, check out these sites:
If you call/email the Agape Counseling Center, tell them about your interest in the TAP (Temperament Analysis Profile) and they may be able to refer you to a counselor in your area who can do the testing.
Keep me posted…For those of you who will take the online version. I think it a great experience, you may learn some things about yourself and or your spouse that may surprise you. Until next time, please keep those comments coming!
