Knowing Who I am

21 Nov

From my post on the Foundation for Marriage was the first session of my premarital counseling.  Here I will be outlining what I took away from my second session and what I have learned.

This was on knowing who I am in terms of what I lust and what I fear.  It was interesting concept, since I haven’t thought of my fears this way before.  For example, if my fear is failure, then automatically I lust success.  It is definitely a new way of looking at lust and fears.  I never realized that what the opposite I fear is what I lust after.

Another way in knowing who I am was to understand myself and others.  This will allow me to see how marriage is for me clearly.  I need to understand where I come from, which was from Session 1, who I am in Jesus Christ, and where I am going.  The understanding of these three things will allow me to better understand why I react the way I do and how to grow and change for the better.
