I admit that I am a pretty emotional person, so much so that I can even cry during some commercials, depending on the subject. You know… those specific beer commercials they show during the Superbowl for example? If I see someone crying, I cry too.
So of course, I have cried plenty of tears since he left me last May. Just hugging someone after he left made me emotional, the human contact triggered the tears. I am definitely getting better in that I am not crying about that so much any more. Weddings, baby births, inspirational stories, triumphant human or animal stories, they all get me going. But when I see a touching commercial, an emotional subject on a TV show or in a movie, a great story online, and I start crying, it feels different now. I find myself shifting my thoughts from the what made me start crying to what I am going through now.
When will a good cry just be a good cry and not bring back such sad memories?
Does anyone else share this feeling?
On a happier note, I have a mantra that I say every night before I go to sleep which is “good things will happen, good things will happen, good things will happen”
What is your mantra?
