I laughed at this question. Almost seems ridiculous to ask… but I pondered on it and can see how someone younger looking in from the outside might wonder if I cry or not.
Well the answer is of course I cry. I cry a lot. There have been periods over the years where I didn’t cry, but of late I cry a lot. I’m a really emotional person.
I cry during movies, I cry from heartbreak, I cry sometimes because a good release is needed when things are a bit overwhelming…
What I don’t cry about directly is hardships at work. I’ve been through some really tough periods over the years, but it hasn’t brought me to tears. Work challenges have evoked a lot of other emotions in me. The hardest to deal with is always when a staff member does something unethical or lashes out at me – usually because of their own wrongdoing and insecurities… I find it very hard to believe people can do certain things and that becomes an emotional roller coaster.
I’m not one to post on social media about being upset, just like I don’t really post about being over the moon happy… I have people in my life that I share these moments with.
