That awkward moment you react to a situation in a way you weren't expecting. Man, this has happened to me all week. Fact: sometimes all you need to do is cry and it'll make you feel better...I can tell I am stressed given the fact I've cried oh pretty much every day this week. Yep, no shame. I cried, I felt better; end of story.
it's funny though when you react to a situation you weren't expecting at all. For example, tonight I was told that someone close to me was planning on moving when their lease was up, I started to cry. There wasn't an exact reason, I just couldn't help the tears from building up (that's been happening a lot lately! failed attempts at a great date night, watching a movie that reminds me of my grandma, or when medical departments try to screw you over...)
Normally, in the above situation I would be so excited for them; I would say I think that is wonderful, you need to get out of your comfort zone, go experience a different city that you've always wanted to live in, be closer to one of your best friends whom you love, Denver will always be here - go be free! But what did I do...tears, I couldn't help it. I felt sad. Really sad. That's when I realized, maybe I care for this person a little more than I expected; I mean why else would I be so upset about the given situation?
It is very possible that it ignited by old bad habits of not being good enough, smart enough, available enough, similar enough, or make someone happy enough to find the silver lining. All I know is this: It's that awkward moment when emotions react faster than your brain and when you realize what's the point...
