It’s Okay To Break Down

 

Today I completely lost it. I was sitting in my office, I got up from my desk, shut the door and cried for a good 10 minutes. It was one of those body shaking cries too, it was serious. After about 10 minutes I told myself it was time to get it together, I told myself that I could do this and it was j14322755_10153934404678716_1404825938488565663_nust a bad day. It was definitely a bad day. I had been in class all morning and rushing from meeting to meeting all afternoon and I was just done. I was spent, I couldn’t do anymore and it seemed like everyone needed something. I just cried, I let out all my frustration and I let myself cry. Now if you know me personally you know that I am not a crier, I hate to cry. I also know that I am not Superwoman even though I do pretend to be. I’ve realized since I came to college that crying is okay. It doesn’t make me weak, it just means I’ve been strong for too long. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and spent, cry it out. Give yourself 10-15 minutes of cry time, then pick yourself up, dust off, put on a smile and keep going. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life. footer
