i have never ever thought of myself as an emotional person, but i lately, i've been feeling pretty emotional. the littlest things are making be cry and get angry.

i just don't know what it is.

even movies are getting me to cry. it's like that joke about titanic, if your a woman and you watch it on the right day at the right time, it's the best movie in the world, other than that, it just sucks.

i think is has a lot to do with me bottling my emotions all of the time. i remember being a little girl and crying about something and having my dad say, "don't cry. are you weak? only weak people cry." even now, i know my dad sees crying as weakness and i think i've been bottling everything up to not look weak.

but really, i think i'm just as "weak" as everyone else. sometimes, you just need to let it all out.

You're human :) ... Normal human who has feelings and need to cry and that's okay... Does not make you weak but stronger for whatever else comes your way. Embrace it.

i heard the words, "if you dont stop crying, i will give you something to cry about" far too many times as a kid, so i quit. only now that i have been out of my parents house for years can i finally weep again. it feels good.
