I used to think crying was a sign of weakness and, as a result, I never let myself cry. I most certainly never let anyone else see me cry.
As I’ve gotten older, my viewpoint on crying has changed. So this quote from actor Kaley Cuoco, Penny from The Big Bang Theory, really resonated with me.
“I cry all the time. I love to laugh, too. It’s important to create an environment for yourself where you feel what you need to and don’t hold it in. Today, I’m comfortable enough in my own skin that I can laugh or cry when I need to, and it feels so good.”
