Uptight, judgmental, prude, control freak

Sometimes this would be a good description of me! It bothers my DF that I'm so uptight about certain things, for example raunchy movies, and that I'm somewhat of a control freak. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can loosen up and live and let live?! I used to be like this but the past few years have gotten more and more prudish and judgmental. This is NOT how I want to live my life. Sometimes I get upset by the littlest things.

When your first instinct is to say no, say yes. (not on everything of course)

Maybe ease into somethings.

Have your DH pick out movies that you normally wouldn't watch because of the raunchiness and just sit down and watch it with him... but have him choose some that are not just out and out crazy with what make you uncomfortable, start out small.

The control freak thing. I don't know... it could be the same idea I had above.... try to start out small giving your husband bits and peices of controland you just don't say anything. You have to retrain yourself to just allow things to happen if its something you don't want to live with all the time.

Drugs and alcohol always seem to do the trick.

Haha, sounds like me. I don't care about raunchy movies, but the stupid teenage "comedy" dumbass movies DH watches make me wanna gag! He is 60 freakin years OLD!!! And judgemental? Oh yeah; not judgemental on things like gay marriage and welfare, but absolutely constipated over f*cking seatbelts and permissive parents. I also need to control DH from running over to see his BFF before he even has dinner.... especially if I know the BFF's flirty divorced daughter is there. No, I don't want to change. I am perfectly f*cking happy the way I am.

LMAO!!!
