Pass the tissues, please!
Growing up I was quick to cry. As an adult frustration and anger can mean waterworks.
I’m not sure who invented waterproof mascara but they’re my hero.
It’s embarrassing how much and what makes me cry. Commercials. Certain stories on the news. Movies. TV.
Pass the tissues.
Honestly,I usually just have tissues stashed in a pocket. But I’m here to say… there is something to be said for a good cry.Sometimes you need it. I know it sounds odd I’m encouraging this. Hear me out. There is something about giving into that emotion, getting it out and moving on.It can be a reset button. We all need a rest sometimes.
There is no shame in that. Owning your feelings is hard. Admitting you hurt or are sad can feel almost impossible. So to suggest a good cry, seems outlandish.
I also tend to shut down when I’m hurting. I have a hard time letting people know I’m hurt. Silliness I know…
Quote for you:
Just because you have days where you feel really overwhelmed. Doesn’t mean you’re a bad Mom. It’s ok to cry & it’s ok to need a break. You’re doing an amazing job.
You really are.
First we grew a person. Some of you a couple.
Some of you work, go to school, are full time Moms.
Your lives are hectic! It’s not a cakewalk.
There are bumps and mountains.
It is ok to have to take a moment a hit that reset button.
I got some tissues in my pocket for you Mommas.
