Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Crying. I know it’s normal and I don’t think less of anyone else for crying. When I cry, though, I automatically feel like whatever argument I was going to make is invalidated. I worry that anyone who sees me cry will think I am trying to manipulate them (because I am a woman and that is why women cry, right? Those are the ideas I grew up with…). I feel like crap after I cry – worn out and headachey. It just sucks.
But again, crying is normal. It’s okay to cry, and it’s healthy to cry. Intellectually I know all that. Emotionally I am angry at myself for crying every.single.time.
