Never let them see you cry.

You know those days where something really stupid happens, and you lose your temper because of how lame it is, and you stick up for yourself because you're tired of being spoken to like you're an idiot, so you ask for more respect and then you GET it, and you're so worked up and stunned that they conceded the point that you can barely keep it together until they're gone (after. giving. you. a. hug.) and then you burst into tears at your desk just in time for your boss to come out and ask if you're ok and you suddenly look like a ridiculous hormonal pregnant woman, and you know exactly how it looks because you're 9 months pregnant, which makes you cry more, because the truth is that hormones have nothing to do with it, and sticking up for yourself has been a long time coming and you're only sorry that you waited til you have 3 weeks left to do it?

I hate those days.

>>>hugs<<<

it happens and it will be okay. don't beat yourself up about how it appears - their perception is not your problem. instead, be proud of yourself for putting your foot down. doesn't it feel grand!

Monday, Monday. We can only hope that Tuesday-Friday is better. Hang in there.

Don't feel bad. I had myself a good cry when i stood up for myself and refused to be kicked out of the chucky cheese in the mall for the 7th time. I will not give up my spot in the ball pit because that place was suposedly "only for children"

Good for you Erin. That sticking up for yourself thing is so intimidating, but now that you have broken the crust, look out!
