my time being affected by others.
I am Type A and usually schedule my day as much as I can. If something doesn’t go according to plan, it throws me off.
Pre motherhood, I had to know all the details. Everything was put into the calendar. There was some time built in for wiggle room, but not much.
Post motherhood, I relaxed some – it was expected that things weren’t always going to go as expected. With that mindset, I also knew to overestimate how much time was needed to do things.
My kiddo is the only person who can affect my time without it severely affecting my mood/day.
In life, my divorce has been the hardest things due to so much out of my control. I can’t recall how many times we went to court just to be reset and have to make another appearance. My divorce took 16 months and a lot of it was a waiting game. It was also the biggest mindfuck because the person I once loved was so unpredictable and doing things just to fuck with me.
Work – what irks me is meetings on meetings on meetings… that are highly unnecessary. The other thing and meeting related are other people putting meetings on my calendar for the same day. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but nonetheless still annoying.
Please tell me I’m not alone with this major stress point.
