Me and crying....we don't go well together. First of all I really look ugly when I cry. Secondly it really does give me a headache. But aside from that , I am not much of a crier at all. Truthfully and sadly, I learned a long time ago that crying really gets me no where. Not sure if I learned that as a little girl or a teenager, but it stuck and instead I developed a very thick skin. Which actually was helpful when I met and married "My Man" since he is not the most tactful or sensitive man, by default. However, I found it pleasing early on to fight my way thru the emotions in my adult life. But the older I get the more I enjoy having a good cry which doesn't happen very often. I still can not get the thought out of my head that it is a waste of energy, emotion and time. But today I did it! I had a good cry. You see when the tears finally come out is when I am emotionally exhausted and someone says just the wrong thing and I finally have nothing left to do but let out the emotions by allowing my heart to accept the hurt, frustation or pain. I know it is all very sad but true. Crying, good or bad, sometimes it just has to be done!
