I Can’t Stop Crying

Have you ever had one of those days when you are just weary and weepy and you can’t stop crying?  Well, I’m in the throes of one today.  There are a lot of issues in my life right now that are coming fast and furiously making my stress levels overwhelmingly sky high.  Problems are everywhere I turn and I’m the one in charge.  It’s not just work problems.  It’s family, it’s the kids, it’s the former husband, it’s financial difficulties, it’s things breaking in the house, it’s emotional sadness, it’s just freaking everything.

And I’m tired.  I’ve not been sleeping.  I’m worried (and rightly so) for a lot of things, especially having to do with the kids.  My hands are tied in so many matters.  I am trying to let go and allow things to unfold, but they aren’t unfolding well.  I’m frustrated.  I’m sick to my stomach about so much that’s going on.

I can’t stop crying.  In the midst of a crying jag, I’m writing because I just need to know someone is listening.  Have you ever felt that way?  We don’t need to talk and I’m not about to bore you with the ever growing list of problems in my life.  I know I’m not the only one with issues right now so if you’re dealing with stuff as well, just know I’m sending a hug to you too.

I’m not suicidal because I’d never, ever leave my kids nor abandon my responsibilities.  So don’t worry.  But sometimes when we’re feeling alone, we just need a little kindness and compassion when we are depleted.  And no, I’m not pre-menstrual nor menopausal.  I’m just really having a crappy day.

Thanks for reading.  I hope your day is better than mine.

    Sometimes being an adult is just frickin’ hard, but that is okay. It is absolutely okay to feel overwhelmed and emotional. Sometimes that is exactly what we need to feel stable again. I know things are ugly feeling right now, but I also know you will sail through this. Virtual hugs!

    You are so most definitely allowed to break down. Everyone needs those moments. Get it all out. Tomorrow will come. Things will be there to cope with. You just need this break to regroup. Take the break. Don’t beat yourself up over this. You are human. You are loved. You will overcome all! 💖 much love, hugs, and of course… ✨glitter✨💖

    Sometimes when I feel like this I put on some particular music or film and allow myself to have a really good crying session. It can help just to relieve the tension. Other times everything makes me cry. Don’t feel bad about it. That’s just life and things get us down.

    Several of us have felt like that. – I certainly have!! Being a responsible adult is hard. Sometimes it seems like these hardships come in threes. You start to wonder why are you being punished and when will the negative things stop. Definitely allow yourself to feel emotions – cry, scream whatever you need to do. Then keep yourself and the kiddos busy – find something that you all enjoy doing (play a game, go for a walk, paint) and for that short amount of time live in the moment, don’t worry about the bills, the ex, work, or even the repairs. Good luck!


  7. I hope today was better! Sending you a hug!
