Relax!

That word is probably the command I’ve been told most often in my life. I’m sorry, but it is just not in my chemical makeup. I’ve tried therapy, prescription drugs, herbal supplements, yoga, music with subliminal messages. It’s just not going to happen. Boyfriend has said that I may as well be in a stressful job because I’ll be stressed out either way. Frankly, I think I really shine when the pressure is really on (and not just in my head).

New boss called me into his office the other night to let me know that he thinks I’m doing a good job, but that he sees me getting worked up over little things. He said it’s just a job; it’s just an entry-level job (ok, stop rubbing it in already). There’s nothing to stress out about. I just need to relax.

Uh-huh. Right. Never going to happen.

I spent half the night upset over our little discussion.
