Even vs. Uneven.

I have a confession.

I hate things that are uneven. Every 
night, I go online & make our bank 
accounts all even. I park my car on
the driveway or in the garage on a
very straight line. When we have
food or treats that can be counted 
out, I have to have an even amount.
It's physical & doesn't feel great if
things are uneven. I get really antsy
if things are out of order. Crazy, eh?

To be honest, it's pretty easy to live
this way. I just need to make sure all
aspects of my daily life are within an
even capacity. If it's not, then I have
to fix it, which I'm happy to do so that
I can feel good about that moment.

Do you have issues with things being uneven?
Or have you never thought about it in the past?

I thrive on asymmetry.

I don't think about things being even so I guess it doesn't bother me, but what I have a hard time with is structural symmetry . There is something about it that is physically unpleasant when I look at it.

Interesting! I am very specific about what is even, and what is uneven. Certain things in life should be even, eg pictures (evenly hung), books, lengths of fingernails (!) and certain things should be uneven, eg number of biscuits on a plate, number of flowers in a vase. I never thought about it before though, but reading your post has made me realise! X

I agree, PP!

I love things to be in order as well, Anne. Pictures hung straight, cabinet doors closed, books pulled forward and in height order on the shelf, and clothing in the closet hung by length. Strange but true!

Definitely OCD, Gill!!

I'm glad I'm not alone Penny!

My sister is like this. She was the first diagnosed case of childhood OCD in our area. I on the other hand am the polar opposite. Not understanding her disorder when I was also a child, I would torture her unknowingly with my crazy outfits, my messy desk (though I knew where everything was) and my let's see what happens attitude. I've gained a few of her traits since we have aged (I think things through much more thoroughly). Whatever makes you feel safe and happy is what I say! (P.S. I am a pro musician, and I love uneven syncopated beats.) :)
