I have to start this blog post by saying that although the title may suggest the contrary, you’re absolutely not about to read a 700 word sob story about my sad life so far in 2019.
This light hearted little post was inspired by the fantastic Hannah Gale. I was having a good old scroll right back into her archives when I came across this post, Things That Made Me Cry This Month.
The post basically explains how having a baby has “played absolute fucking havoc” with her emotions. As always the post is honest and relatable and it really got me thinking about, well…crying.
Even without experiencing childbirth and motherhood, my emotions play havoc on me monthly. Actually you know what, daily!
I’ve always been an emotional person, I wear my heart on my sleeve and I feel other peoples emotions to the full extent as if they were my own. It’s a blessing and a curse.
Sometimes I feel I can conquer the world, other times I might cry over a crumb on my bedside table (probably too many bourbons).
I often have hilarious chats with the girls at work about what we’ve unreasonably cried about the night before so I thought it would be great fun to share some of the things that have set me off this year so far.
I hope this list gives you a little giggle and reminds you that sometimes, all you need is a good cry – no matter how silly it feels!
You’re either thinking about unfollowing me because I’m clearly a very unstable person OR you’re feeling relieved that you’re not the only one who gets set off by a limping animal. I hope it’s the latter.
I want to share more of this kinda content on my blog, I think it’s so important for us to be able to share how we’re feeling and realise that actually, fluctuating emotions is totally natural.
Sometimes you just gotta let it all out!
What’s the last thing you cried about?
