I cry a lot. It doesn’t matter if I’m happy or sad or angry about something, the best way I know how to express my emotions is through tears. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it, I think it’s healthy. Science can back me up on this. Even though I cry on the daily, it doesn’t help that I’m on my period this week. This only means that I have less control over my tears and I more/harder at everything.
Here’s some of the shit I’ve cried at this week. Spoiler alert, I mostly cry a dogs.
- This Blind Audition on The Voice
Have you ever cried at something because it was so beautiful? I started watching The Voice on Hulu with my sister. This audition caught me completely off guard. It was so perfect. Her backstory was moving, but not as moving as her performance. HER VOICE IS SO SMOOTH. SHE’S SO CONFIDENT. SHE PROJECTS LIKE A SURROUND SOUND SPEAKER. I’ve watched this performance at least 10 times and I cry EVERY TIME. Brb gonna go watch it again.
- This article that involves animals
Are you KIDDING ME? TWO RESCUE DOGS TAKING CARE OF TWO DUCKLINGS? HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF ANYTHING SWEETER? I’m crying as I type this right now.
- Some Imgur post that I read at 2 a.m. about a dog
I don’t know if this was real or not, but it doesn’t matter I sobbed. The post was a first person narrative about a dog who had cancer and had to be put down (even though he didn’t know it). He recalled his last couple of days on earth and all of the people that he loved that came to see him. It ends with him staring up at his “person” while he’s “getting sleepy” and saying “I love my person.” WHY. I cried so hard my chest hurt. I’m pretty sure I passed out because I wasn’t breathing properly from all the heaving I was doing.
- When I picked my dog up at the vet
I obviously waited until I got in the car to do this so no one thought I was crazy. This was my 8 year old dog’s first big procedure. I dropped her off at 7 a.m, heard her cry when I left and I cried on my way home.
I came back to pick her up at 4 in the afternoon and I was so happy to see her that I cried again. My sister was also in the car and didn’t even have to look at me know know that I was crying. But she did say, “You’re such a baby,” to let me know that she knew.
- I read a bunch of motivational phone wallpapers
THEY WERE JUST SO ENCOURAGING AND CUTE AND I COULDN’T HANDLE IT. I considered making one of them my wallpaper, but I didn’t wanna look like a loser so I just left the picture of pants-less John Stamos instead.
- I laughed so hard at this I cried.
- I told someone about the Imgur dog post
In my defense, I started it with “I might cry while I’m telling you this.” But then I immediately started crying…
- All four of my dogs played in the mud and needed a bath
I work retail on the weekends and it’s basically hell on earth. After a busy and exhausting day, I got a text that I needed to bathe the puppies because they were disgusting or sleeping outside. I was torn; Did I let the puppies sleep outside so I could just plop down and sleep or did I suck it up and bathe them?
I cried while I bathed them.
- Looked at my dog
She’s just so old and wise and beautiful and pees while doing a hand stand and I love her so much ok?!
- I read a story about how the Phoenix Lights happened 19 years ago
I have an irrational fear of aliens and I burst into tears when I read the headline. I didn’t even read the entire article, I just read the headline and it was over. Here’s a video of that event.
Once again, I am not ashamed about how much I cry. And if you don’t cry about animals as much as I do, you obviously don’t have a soul.
