As in, I cry a lot. Over everything.
Kirsty’s I Must Confess linkup this week is about what makes you cry. If I am sad, I cry. Angry? I cry. Happy? Yep, probably going to cry then, too. I cry over everything – even TV commercials! I don’t think I’m alone in this.
I don’t think I was always this extreme, though I had been known to cry over dropping a hairbrush. I put that down to severe hormonal imbalances. But since I had Nick, I don’t know, I think the stresses of being a mum – the constant worry about your kids – is enough to make even the hardest women teary.
The news makes me cry, because I always imagine us in the shoes of those in the news. I also realise that no one is invincible, and it could as easily be us on the front page or lead story any day.
The weather almost made me cry – 6 weeks of rain and not being able to do all the outdoorsy stuff I love made me legitimately sad.
Books make me cry, as do TV shows, even though I know THEY’RE.NOT.REAL!
Movies? Forgeddaboudit. I’d just rather stick to Rom-Coms now so I don’t have to pack tissues with me every time.
I was on the verge of tears at personal training one night because I just felt like I couldn’t go one step further.
Athletes winning medals, sporting teams winning championships, tennis players winning grand slams….these all make me cry, too. Not because I’m sad or jealous, because I’m proud, and can’t imagine how awesome that feeling must be.
Then of course there’s times where you just need to let it all out.
