Open Book


This is a scheduled post. I'm still road tripping!
I have something I want to talk about and I'm wondering if anyone else is the same way or complete opposite. Basically...
I wear my heart of my sleeve. Yup, that's right I admit it, I do. I can't help it. I'm the girl who will sit at home, on the couch and cry because of a commercial. I'm the girl who cries when a guy and girl end up together in a movie. I'm the girl who tears up when people talk about their family members passing. I cry during television montages. I cry when people tell me things from their heart. 

I also tend to cry when I'm expressing emotions from my own heart. For a long time, I use to be the kid who never cried. Who never told people what they meant to me or expressed how I really felt. I think the older I've become the more I've worn my heart of my sleeve. Now granted while I'm at work, I can keep that stone cold, no heart, and I don't care attitude in check. However, recently even at work I've become a little softer. 

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with wearing my heart of my sleeve. Sometimes it's probably not the smartest thing to do but it's just who I am.

Girl, I hear ya! Specific things really set me off - like animals and children. I can't watch any movie with animals in it, I can't watch the commercials on TV about abused animals.. any movie or show or commercial about babies or children makes me cry. I'm a great big baby sometimes! HA!

I think we've led a similar life. I never used to cry or share my feelings, my mom used to joke I had a heart of stone. Then as I got older things changed...and now I'm the girl who shares too much and cries at everything!

absolutely nothing wrong with wearing your heart on your sleeve!!!

I don't think there is anything wrong with that at all! I am the same way, and I always feel like, for me, that it's better to be open with my emotions then completely closed off. I feel like I gain more meaningful friendships that way. Yes, sometimes you will get burned, but oh well...

For a lot of people, it's the opposite. The older you get the less you wear your heart on your sleeve. I'd consider yourself lucky!

I have to say, I'm a lot like this. I take things personally and am so emotional when it comes to things like commercials and tv shows!

It's crazy I was just telling a French friend of mine how hard it has been lately for me over here and i started crying. Her eyes got so big and I realized that I NEVER do that! Sometimes you just gotta...

Good for you! Life is so much better when you just express your emotions!

I wish I could. But I don't! I had a guy I was dating tell me "You don't have walls around your heart, you just don't have a heart!" HA!

In this wonderful life... said...

hope you are having fun on your trip!!!

Jayme said...

The way I see it, wearing your heart on your sleeve is WAY better than having a heart of stone! And I agree - as I've gotten older, I have become much more emotional.

I am definately like this too! I laugh at myself when I cry over a commercial though! haha I remember when I was little that the first movie I ever cried over was "My Girl" when it first came out. That is some sad stuff right there.

Unfortunately, I completely wear my heart on my sleeve as well. I don't think there is anything wrong with having a heart and being emotional!
