Who puts the most pressure on you — yourself or others?
No question about it. I definitely put more pressure on myself. I am a Type A Personality and a Perfectionist. My daughter is helping me learn to change my way of thinking and relax more. Her help is starting to work. I no longer feel that everything has to be perfect or put the pressure on myself to finish a chore or work; I know that I can come back to it and finish at a later time; it’s not going anywhere.
Another thing my daughter has helped me with is learning and accepting that things are not always my fault and that I’m not in control of anyone else. I have to learn to be me and stop thinking I’m responsible for everybody and everything. It’s not an easy thing to do, but I’m trying.
