Containment

I am obsessive with my organization. Everything has a place. My clothes are hung by color and type. My towels are folded and my pillow cases ironed. It is my way to micromanage my stress. A desperate attempt to ease my anxiety; as if sorting my possessions will somehow transform my perseverative thoughts.

As a teacher this form of organization has been an asset. Every item has a container and the room is clean and orderly. This system helps my students minimize the chaos of their lives. We fill our boxes and place them upon the shelves. For a brief moment, we contain our fear and close the lid on our worries.
