Were you overly emotional growing up? Dry those watering eyes, because you aren't alone. The Twitter hashtag #growingupemotional gave people the opportunity to share all the things that made them cry growing up. This user points out that several movies aimed at kids had a disturbing trend of making kids cry. Why were so many G-rated movies full of traumatizing scenes?
Yes, maybe we're being a bit extra by obsessing over how we must be in trouble because you added a period at the end of your text message. But you know what? You should know how we are by now. If that isn't an intentional message, then what were you thinking by changing it up?
"No, I am not being overly dramatic! Throwing a vase against the wall is a perfectly normal reaction to being told that dinner will be four minutes late... Actually, now that I hear it out loud, I guess I owe everyone an apology. Stop staring at me, though!"
Every so often, we manage to keep it together. It sucks because no one knows how big of a deal this is, which makes you want to cry as well. But you don't, because you are the master of your domain... for now.
If you do indulge in a long cry sesh, make sure to stay hydrated. You can cry for all sorts of ridiculous reasons, but be smart about it. Have a Gatorade along with those tissues. You'll be happy later that you did.
