I’m normally a pretty even-tempered, go-with-the-flow kind of person. I don’t lose my cool easily, and I’m not super Type A. I’ve been complimented many times in my life for being adaptable and easy-going.
But there are certain times when my normally dormant inner control freak roars to life and temporarily throws all of that right out of the window.
The magic formula for this is when I feel trapped in a situation that’s particularly miserable, with no idea of when it will be over or how to speed up the process.
The last several months at my corporate job — when ALL I wanted was to run my business full-time, but in the meantime I still had to keep showing up at a job I hated day after day — triggered this in a major way.
Most recently (over the past 6 months to be precise), I turned into a total control freak about my physical health. Some of you know that I’ve been on a rollercoaster health journey over the past several months dealing with an eczema flare-up like I’ve never experienced in my life. And it has been tough.
