Hey! There's No Crying In....

We, as women, are often pushed to swallow sadness and if we’re not pushed, we inflict the gulping on ourselves lest we offend people with our drawn out mushy sensibility. When emotions breach the surface, we fear we’ll be seen as the girl who can’t hack it rather than the woman who is complex and comfortable with her emotions. I’m not saying every mistake or failure should turn into a sobbing session but I do believe we have the right to have a wimpy moment. It doesn’t make us less bad ass. We don’t always have to have it together. No one does. Seriously, show me a person who always has it together and I’ll show you a control panel in her back. Who wants to be a robot?  

A life without emotion is not a life. Get through your issues however you need to. It’s your right. You have a right to be who you are. You don’t have to suppress yourself to a level of suffocation. You can still kick ass—even as you’re blotting the tears away.
