    I have found that I don’t totally fit just one of the four types. I definitely have “accomplisher”, but I don’t make to-do lists. However, I tend to overwhelm myself thinking about all that has to get done, and not seeking help in getting it done. I’m ashamed to admit that the other part of me is a “dramatist”. I’m always looking for a “pity party”. Not sure if that comes from my low self esteem, or from my upbringing. All I know is I definitely need to be rescued. I need to give up some things to allow more time for God in my life. I don’t do bible study in the morning because I exercise then. I am desperately trying to lose weight, and that has been all-encompassing for me. I need to learn how to accept myself as I am right now, extra pounds and all, and then, maybe then, I will finally be successful in weight loss.

  2. I haven’t completed the questions at the end yet, but after reading Chapter 8, I had to come and comment b/c I am literally in shock right now to discover that I AM addicted to adrenaline! I perfectly fit the profile of the “Achiever”-I make lists each day and don’t feel accomplished unless I check off as much as possible! I totally add to my stress by adding more and more to my list until my list becomes pretty much unattainable, or at least requires some major stressing to get it all done.

    I took the opportunity to pray at the end and ask God to help change my perspective, and I’m already seeing with a 2 year old, there’s really no need for adding too much to my list, taking care of him is a full time job let alone things like laundry, dishes, preparing meals, groceries, etc. Although my lists started as a way of helping me remember things that I really did need to do, I have been adding in extra things that I would like to accomplish in hopes that it would motivate me. I’m also seeing that a lot of the extra “things” I’ve been adding are things I do for the praise of others. I went and crossed some of those extra things off and I’m already feeling less stressed! So thankful for this study, thank you again Bible Study leaders for all that you do.

  3. I couldn’t relate to addicted to adrenaline. I’m more of the opposite, addicted to procrastination, which unfortunately leads to stress! I need a chapter on that!

    Once again, I probably have highlighted the entire chapter! One quote I really loved, and was a bit of an ah-ha moment was ” if the devil can’t hinder our relationship with God by making us immoral, he’ll simply make us busy”. This is SO true! What was a realization to me was that the things that we are too busy with, that consume us, might all be “good’ things, it doesn’t mean they are bad or wrong things. But we have to decipher what God is calling us to do and what we are placing on ourselves. And it means exercising our given right to say no. Which I think is hard!! But if our lives are SO busy that we don’t have time for God, or our husbands/kids/family etc. who are we glorifying?! It’s certainly not glorifying our Father!
    Another amazing quote was ” most importantly, our desire to walk with God on a daily basis gives us the strength to not only acknowledge that changes need to be made but to believe that He will provide the strength and wisdom to decipher which changes we need” AMEN!! As I press deeper into our Father, I become more sensitive to the many ways He communicates to me and He reveals to me what changes need implemented in my life and then gives me the strength/courage to make it happen!

  6. After 3 anxiety attacks this year I have made a lot of changes in my life. I am seeing a great counselor, taking this OBS and slowing down. I have been learning how to do nothing. I was laughing while I read t his chapter last night because I am a recovering anxiety addict.

    I identify with the accomplisher. I have always been a list maker. My lists never ended because I was always making a new one. I am also the dramatist. I never noticed it until I read this chapter but I tend to over react.

    I say I am recovering because I read the chapter late and felt no guilt or urgencly to do so. I had a ton of stuff to do last night but chose to sit still and think about the chapter and its meaning to me.

    Like any addict I will never be cured. I will always have to stay deligent and remind myself to stay positive, enjoy the little things, minimize the bad things, and be STILL.

    I love this study. This is one of those books that I will probably re-read at least once a year. I can see myself pulling out this book every year right before the Holiday season to remind myself of all the things I’ve learned.
