Have you ever seen a 30 year old have an emotional meltdown over groceries? If you haven’t, it’s just as dramatic as it sounds🤪 For those of you that don’t know me on a personal level, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m Sarah, I am a control freak and today, I cried over groceries🤦🏻‍♀️ Well, I cried because I was already having a rough day and that just happened to be my breaking point(watch my stories if you’d like the full story on the grocery dilemma.) I don’t function well in chaos, disorganization, under pressure, or when things don’t go exactly my way. Lack of control gives me anxiety. I’m a real blast at family functions, around too many children, and at gatherings where there’s more than five people😬 I’m also a highly sensitive, empathetic, introverted person that feeds off of other people’s emotions and energy’s, which usually leaves me feeling drained after being in social situations. It also makes connecting with people through social media and being able to choose who I work with and give my energy to the perfect job for me! I’ve learned all of these things about myself since making personal development a part of my daily life(job requirement as a coach🙌🏻) I used to just think I was crazy, but by learning more about myself, I’ve realized how important protecting my energy is and am still learning how to control the controllable and let go of the rest. I’ll probably never be a go with the flow type person no matter how badly I’d like to be. I’ve learned ways to help me cope when I’m on the verge of a breakdown. Exercise is a huge release for me(also a job requirement☺️) it’s something that I can control, and it makes me feel really good. Having a positive support system that understands me and doesn’t judge me for having a bad moment or day. I make time to be alone to recharge my batteries after being social. I remind myself that I can not control the people around me or the things that happen, but I’m always in control of how I respond and react. Some days I respond with grace and some days I lose my shit, but very day I try to be better than I was the day before. I’m a work in progress. We all are💙
