309. What makes you, you?
If you were to ask my husband or many of my friends and family, they would say that the prime thing that makes me, me is my obsessive compulsive need for control. I do not do well with things that I am unable to control. It can be a positive and a negative all at the same time. The intense need to be in control of every aspect of my life is one of the reasons that I am almost always in a state of anxiety. As everyone is aware, it is impossible to control every aspect of your environment. There are just some things that are out of your control. And that my friend is what causes me extreme anxiety. Whether it is something major like health issues to something small like “will I be able to find a parking space in a crowded parking garage and make my appointment on time”. These are things that I try my hardest to control, but of course, I can’t.
The good side of being overly controlling is that I am an expert on planning and organizing anything and everything that is happening in our life.
