As a middle child in a family of four kids, I figured out pretty quickly that the best way to get what I wanted was to get along. I left the melodrama, arguments, and fights to my sister and brothers. In a funny twist, I ended up acting in theater programs from elementary school into college. My favorite character was playing the lead in the Greek tragedy Electra. As in all Greek tragedies, Electra was a tormented soul bent on avenging her father’s murder. It was a monument to overacting and I loved every minute of it! While overacting may be the norm for ancient playwrights, your body may be over-reacting and causing you more grief than any greek tragedy may dish out.
