Something I wrote in an email to a friend about being an emotional person….
Being emotional isn’t always a bad thing. I’m an extremely emotional person, it doesn’t take much for me to cry, and sometimes it’s a pain in the ass, especially when I can’t much control it. But, I’d rather be somewhat overly emotional and feel everything deeply than be cut off and separated from my emotions. It’s a trade off, but I’ll take it. So what if sometimes those sappy commercials or great moments in sports make me cry. I also notice when the sky is beautiful, how the wind feels, that clouds make shapes, that music moves my soul, and that Karen’s eyes shine differently when she looks at me… all of which make me cry too. It’s a blessing, and sometimes a little bit of a curse, but again… I’ll take it.
