Truthiness Day 3: Crying in Baseball…errrr Life

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.
