I am very meticulous about many things. It’s just my nature. I can see detail in things that some people might not notice. Everybody knows this about me...I'm not sure if this is good or bad? When I was young I was a little embarrassed about my very fastidious nature. Everything had to be clean, organized and everything had to match. This is who I am. I’ve lightened-up a little bit as I've learned to just let some things go.
Some people use the word anal to describe such behavior. I hate the word anal…it doesn’t sound like a very nice way to describe oneself. I prefer anything else to tell you the truth. Meticulous, particular, fastidious…even fussy or compulsive. Freud probably had no idea that a term that originated from his Freudian theory would be used to coin a word often used in modern day language. Maybe it’s time to change things up a bit.
