I don’t just mean when you’re pregnant and your hormones are raging, but all the time. What’s wrong with me? I don’t mean a full out sobbing cry, but I feel like I’m on the edge of tears all the time. It’s not necessarily a bad cry either.
Well of course if your a new mom, it’s the what happened to my life, I’m so exhausted can’t even take a shower cry or let me just hide in the pantry like “Charlotte” from Sex In the City because I just can’t handle this right now cry.
But I also mean the empathy cry like when you watch the news or when you see something and think what is this world coming to? The other day when I was downtown I saw a homeless man and I started to think what his life was like, what was he like as a child, where is his mom? I know probably too much thinking, but it reminds me of how fortunate I am and how fortuntate my children are that they have a home and a family that loves them.
Or the happy you totally get me cry, like when someone says something or you watch something and you can totally relate. It brings out your emotions and makes you feel not so alone.
I think as women that’s one of our strong suits, our emotion when used to gain understanding or show empathy. So crying doesn’t just mean we are sobbing whining messes, it means we care and we get it. Or maybe sometimes we just need a release. So go ahead let it out!
When a woman becomes a mom, you think you’re the same, but I think something happens that makes you more of you! So do I cry more now that I’m a mother? Probably and I don’t think it’s necesarily a bad thing. What about you?
