Emotional Girl

Monday was not a very good day.

The details are unimportant.

Because the ultimate reason my Monday sucked was due to my own damn brain.  I let my silly thoughts run away and then I got upset over nothing.  Or over things that haven't actually happened or are entirely out of my control. 

I think it started out as preparing myself for the worst so that I don't overreact in the moment.  I'm like a closeted over-emotional girl.  I mean, my emotions, good and bad, fall out of my eyeballs.  But shhh...I like to pretend that no one is aware of this.  So the end result is that I got myself all hot and bothered and worked up and nearly teary.

And I couldn't tell anyone that I let those silly thoughts run wild in my head all day because it's the sort of thing that never ever makes a lick of sense when you say it out loud. 

I'm so ridiculous.  I don't do this often, but yesterday I definitely let the crazy what ifs stomp on a perfectly fine day.

By midnight, I did figure out that the solution is to just end one situation and to suck it up and be patient (it's a virtue!) with the other situation.  But it took me all flippin' day to get to that wisdom.

Ugh...being an emotional girl gets the best of me now and then!

The thing of it is KK...we are emotional because we are women and we are allowed. Do not stress over this.

I do the same thing sometimes... I have a crazy day because I make it crazy, and it stinks but I figure sometimes you just need to let the crazy out so you can move on and have a better next day
Sending hugs <3

I hope you are okay my friend! We all have those crazy days but don't let it get the best of you!

I'm sorry you had a rough day! This happens to all of us! I know for me, it seems to be happening way too often these days. If I could just learn to stop over-thinking situations....

I am the same way. I get so worked up. I hope things have sort of resolved
