I found a new blog to follow today and it was very insightful. I thought I’d pick at least one of them and reflect upon how it moved me. Well here it is….(reference: Marc and Angel Hack Life )
25. Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t. – It’s okay to fall apart for a little while. You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well. You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
I’m very guilty of being ok all the time. I have to be…..I’m a single mom without spousal support. I am a full time working woman outside of the home and I also try to participate in life outside of work and mommy things. But I realized the other day that it’s very hard for me to open up when I need to cry. And yes sometimes we NEED to. I know this is a learned behavior from my childhood, but it is still hard to shake. I will make an effort in the future to be ok to cry or have a bad day or to just be what I need to be in the moment. and it’s ok.
