    3. Anxious to Calm
    4. Obsessive to Distractible 
    5. Passive to Aggressive

    7. Shy to Sociable

  • Being aware of and understanding your temperament can help with self-acceptance. 

  • The two steps, mentioned in the article, towards self-acceptance are:

    1. "Consider forgiving yourself for having the temperament you were born with."
    2. "Have some understanding for how it may have been difficult for others in your life to get what was happening at the time."

As mental health therapists, we can help with understanding your temperament to gain more self-acceptance.
