HI, MY NAME IS LAKISHA AND I AM A RECOVERING CRY BABY.
I can and will literally cry about everything.
The first thing I (use to) do when things weren’t going my way was CRY, no matter how big or small the situation was. I couldn’t stop the tears from flowing. Even something as simple as getting the wrong address to a restaurant to meet up with friends would send me into a ball of tears, feeling like no one REALLY wanted to hang out with me.
I would call my Mom crying expecting her to solve all of my life problems (even though I know she can’t) but it felt comforting to talk to her. But by the time we would get off the phone and I’d realize what was wrong and I’d start crying heavier than before.
Disappointed in myself for NOT preventing the situation in the first place and feeling powerless to get myself out of it. My emotions would get the best of me and I just thought that was how life had to be.
Imagine a two year old throwing a temper tantrum because that was me.
