Fellow open weepers, please: Do not feel bad about crying in public. It’s kind of amazing, if you really break down the nature of breaking down.
You know who feels emotions? Literally everyone.
Tears are the visible manifestation of extreme emotion- sadness, anger, disappointment or even happiness. But scientists still don't really know why the hell it happens. In fact, crying is so potent that men are conditioned not to do it because it implies weakness.
But that's bullshit. Some studies indicate that crying actually boosts your mood (after you're done, duh) which means that it could very well be nature's wettest coping mechanism. And if you manage to avoid eye contact, crying in public can feel like wearing an invisibility cloak and a suit of armor at the same time.
Crying unabashedly in public sends a message. It says: To me, this train/hallway/sidewalk/Jamba Juice is the same as my bedroom. I am comfortable with myself and the way that I feel.
In fact, I am a very busy person who doesn’t even have enough room in my schedule to pencil in a private cry. I understand that this is something that I need to be doing, and I do not feel that the construct of social boundaries precludes me from doing it right now.
If u need to cry in public, cry !!! don’t hold that shit in for someone else’s comfort !!!!! public crying is the new wave !!!!

So don’t ask me for directions, I'm fucking crying! No, you can’t bum a cigarette because I just touched my runny nose and that’s a swift ticket to a staph infection, buddy! And don't you dare tell me to smile.
When you break up with someone, you should immediately just pretend they’re dead. Here’s why

Break-ups are the worst. There's really not much more for me to say about them that hasn't already been explored in a Nicholas Sparks novel or a Cosmo essay. But I have found a way to make break-ups, and even that awkward transitionary period where you feel like your entire life is a failure, a…
