Letting It All Out

Children are so lucky. They get to just cry whenever they feel bad, mad, sad, glad, whatever. Adults, however, are expected to hold all of their emotions in, maybe letting out a little laugh, or grimace, or frown, a trickle of a tear now and again.
How come adults have to hold it all in? It isn't good...because when you get to your breaking point...all your emotions come pouring out and there is no way to slow it or stop it until everything that is weighing on your heart, soul, and mind for the past bit of forever is out in the open and ready to be healed.
BUT...unlike children, a pat on the back or a glass of milk and a cookie doesn't make everything all better. You still have problems. You still have hurt. You still have worry. You still have gut-wrenching fear that makes you want to throw up. You've just cried your guts out and feel tried PLUS the other emotions.

3 Words to brighten my day:

Crying sucks. It gives you a headache, makes you tired and gives you puffy red eyes. And crying so hard you can't breath except in little huffs REALLY sucks. Why did we dream about being grown up? Sometimes I love it, but sometimes I want to be excited about a cookie and staying up a half hour later than my bedtime like I did when I was a kid. Those were the days. I hope you feel happy again soon. Just think, you'll be here in LA soon!
