For the most part I’m good under stress. I know how to keep myself together and I learned how to stay focused and keep my shit together.
I don’t unravel easily but every now and then I tend to get into my own head and I need to just let it out.
This is when I know I need to just sit in my car and cry it out. I usually drive to an empty parking lot and just let it out.
I had one of these sessions a couple weeks ago when I was mentally drained from dealing with the stress of buying a house, staying at a robot job that I hate because if I don’t I can’t buy a house and the stress from living with family just got to me.
I was tired, moody, and had a bad day at work so I just drove, parked, and cried. I screamed, I punched the steering wheel and I cried until I didn’t have to cry anymore. Once I stopped I felt so much better.
I whipped my tears, gave myself a pep talk and drove home ready to get focused again and keep my eye on the prize. It will get better one day and I have to just be patient and relax.
When I have those days where I just can’t relax, crying it out will be the way I let it out.
Do you have days where you just need to cry it out? Let me know in the comments.
