12 Things It's Okay to Cry About Sometimes

I am a very emotional person. No matter the feeling, I am most likely crying. I cry when I'm happy, sad, angry and especially when I'm tired. The scene in Alice in Wonderland where she literally cries herself a river really resonated with me as a child and can basically sum up my emotional state of mind anytime a boy hurts my feelings.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't spend my entire day crying, but I definitely don't fight back the tears like some people say I should. 2016 literally started off with my being dumped on the corner of a busy street in Chinatown, transitioned into me realizing I needed to live for me, and ever since has been shifting between me being a strong independent woman and a woman on the verge of tears in the pet aisle in Target. More on that later.



As a lover of random holidays that make no sense, I like to keep track of random national days throughout the year. During my latest hunt for an obscure holiday, I found that February 11 is Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day. While I've never spilled milk and if I did I doubt I would cry, I got to think about other things I'm constantly being told not to cry about. So I did what any blogger would do, grabbed my Mac, threw some Law and Order SVU in the background, and started listing all the irrational things that have made me cry lately. Cause why not?



When you ask the stylist to cut off two inches but instead she takes off six.

Spending 30 minutes waiting for the bus only for it to be so full that it drives by without stopping for you.

Wanting to be a strong independent woman but at the same time not being able to carry the kitty litter container home.

Waiting all day for your lunch break then realizing they got your order completely wrong.

Not sharing your blog posts all day long on social media, gaining a bunch of new followers anyways!

  1. Dude I cry all the time. I used to not. Now I do. Yesterday I almost cried because Pai ate dinner without me. I cried because I dropped my latte. I cried because Pai said something really nice to me. I cried because I slammed my finger in the door.

    1. Okay those are all justified, especially the slamming your finger in the door. I fell while tying my shoelaces (yeah that's possible) and I literally laid on the floor for like five minutes wondering if I was just dead. In my defense I bruised my tailbone ice skating.

  2. I've found that I've gotten more emotional as I've gotten harder. But I'm a firm believer that it's always okay to cry!

  4. Once after try to cut too many calories I sat down on the sofa next to my husband said "I'm sorry everyone hates me!" and burst into tears. No context or reason whatsoever, I just needed to eat more.

    PS I'm one of those new readers!

    1. Welcome, I'm literally so happy you're here! And that sounds like something I would definitely do, hungry me has no control on my emotions.

  5. I cry all the time! The worst was a movie commercial the other day, and I just burst out in tears. I don't even think it was too sad, it just had one of those kinda "sad songs" and that was the end for me. I think it was a mixture of being tired and hungry.

    1. I prefer a scary movie commercial late at night to a sad one any day. If it's past 11 I probably feel like crying out of exhaustion anyways, PLEASE do not play a Nicholas Sparks movie commercial within a one mile radius of me!
