Why Everyone Deserves A Good Ugly Cry


Why Everyone Deserves A Good Ugly Cry

What differentiates humans from all other creatures is the deep and un-quenching desire to be appreciated. – Jeffery Fry

IT IS OKAY to want to feel appreciated, it is human and sometimes we all don’t get the appreciation we think we deserve but maybe this is where the problem starts. If you are anything like myself then you over-think everything, panic at the drop of a hat, and you want to feel like the work and effort given in your daily life is not unnoticed. If you are anything like me then you sometimes can’t find a solution for the massive weight sitting on your shoulders (otherwise known as anxiety), but fear not, I found a way to relieve the stress and the anxiety we get because lets be honest everyone feels anxious about something.

IT IS OKAY to cry. Be hysterical, dramatic and if you really want to feel better cry with someone, and don’t you dare be ashamed of how it makes you look and or feel. What I have learned as someone who lets their anxiety interfere with their daily life and interfere with doing things that I love, that the problem starts with you. It is all in your head and though it may be tough to tell yourself otherwise, you are the main solution. You control what you think and feelings and emotions of anxiety can be overpowering and trust me I have had first hand experience of this.

IT IS OKAY to make a fool of yourself. If sitting there and sobbing in a tub of ice cream makes you a fool then by all means we are all fools at some point in time. What I have learned all through out my early “adult” years is that it only gets harder from here, and we have to learn that certain decisions we make as ‘adults” may make us look foolish but the real fools are the ones that won’t accept the fact that this happens to everyone. Humans are known for pointing out flaws instead of embracing them and why would anyone want to live their life by judging others and what they decide to do? If everyone were absolutely perfect this world would be a boring and obsolete place to live.

IT IS OKAY to have control over you life, no one but you. I know you have probably heard this a million times but you only live once. Do not let anyone but you control the way you want to do things in your life. At a certain point you have to come to accept the fact that you can only really do things for yourself. If this means hysterically crying over something small like a parking ticket then so be it. Let the world be your parking enforcement officer and your tears be the solution to the fact that you now have to pay 50 dollars because you went over the time limit by two minutes and thirty seconds (then pay the parking ticket so you do not get into serious trouble).

IT IS OKAY to have a nice long hideous cry, and to admit that life is hard, as long as when you are finished and feeling better you take a good look in the mirror, tell yourself that you were placed on this earth to be someone and you appreciate you because that’s all the appreciation that truly matters.
