Reply To: Big Girls Don’t Cry

So, first off, I didn’t vote. The “poll” actually posed three different questions, not all of which could necessarily be responded to with the same “yes” or “no”.  That said . . .

Absolutely, showing emotion is a good, healthy thing. That whole macho  “bottle it up,” “keep it inside” attitude can lead to a lot of frustration and anger . . . which can get acted out in some not very pleasant ways.  Obviously, too, the other extreme – crying and emoting all the time – can get in the way of being able to lead a productive life.  There is a balance point between those extremes for each of us, and we need to find it and get comfortable with it.

As a guy, I would tear up at times when, for example, a song contained some truly touching lyrics. Or at an especially emotional scene in a movie.  I was a little self-conscious about that, but I didn’t feel it made me a wimp or anything negative. It just showed I wasn’t a stone cold rock.

Like some other girls, I welcome whatever emotional adventures await me when the doc finally begins administering the estradiol (or whatever). I’m legally female now and I will not mind one bit if some clod thinks I cry a bit too much.  🙂
