Am I a Robot?

I am a Robot - Today, I woke up with this thought in my head.  Why you might ask?  My relative is crashing in my flat for one night.  and all day yesterday I 've been cleaning and tidying [I cant bare the idea of my relative seeing how I actually live!]  So I imagined that I was preparing my apartment for an Air b'n'b tourist....This way I will get the place up to standard and forget about this high anxiety experience in the process.  For today, I think I don't need to be an actual robot to make this happen, but if im not then anxiety kicks in big time and the job will not get done properly.  

My robot duties are: 

1. Do not be anxious 

2. Do an amazing job 

3. Do it fast 

4. Without rest

5. Be all welcoming without a care in the world

 After all I am a robot!

Well actually, I'm not, I'm a human being with feelings of a complexity I'm beginning to find out.

My coping mechanisim for this situation is begining to change!
