Here we had Stephanie sharing the story of overcoming her controlling nature to help find space and relaxation with the support of her family and the practice of gratitude.
"Before practicing gratitude, I was a control freak. And I think that's something that everyone has gone through in their lives. It's how we stay sane.
Every change drives us crazy, every little thing that doesn't make sense in our brain, because we always have this defense mechanism on how we're supposed to be okay, and how to function well in society.
And, being able to break down is a luxury, being able to decide is a luxury that not many people are given. So sometimes you become a control freak without knowing it, just to get by."
