Why I Cried

I cried today.

I cried because I'm tired. I cried because I'm hungry. I cried because I got into two "fights" with Sports Editor about not being able to do my job. I want to do my job well, so I cried because he thinks I can't. I cried because of course females cry when arguing with males in the workplace, right? I cried because females can't cry when arguing with males in the workplace. I cried because I have papers due. I cried because I'm not weak or incapable, I'm just busy. I cried because the only lady to ask me why I cried was the parking attendant. I cried because an old friend hugged me when he saw me cry. I cried because on my iPod, Lloyd cried that he wanted to "Treat U Good," and no one was there to treat me good. I cried because I was afraid of crying while driving on a dark freeway. I cried when I called my mother because she could tell that I was crying.

I cried today.

Stress always makes me cry. And then I cry more because the crying dips my self esteem because I am crying and goddammit, I should be able to handle everything.

By the next day, I am mostly recovered.

Good luck babe.

i love this.. open, honest and pure. i almost want to cry cuz i feel this way when i do, but can't even give this simple, wonderfully written explanation of why i cry, which in turn makes me cry harder =p ok long sentence LOL

Molly: It was like, "I'm mortified yet my eyes won't stop leaking" type stuff. But you're right, I totally felt better the next day.

Yummy: Aw, thanks! It's probably a very telling sign that I was formulating this blog post while I was crying.

Again, thanks SO MUCH for the kind words, everybody!
