Confessions of an Emotional Girl

I've always been the crybaby, the one who is driven by emotion and not facts. While I'm learning that there are blessings to being an emotionally minded person, it's not without its drawbacks. So, in case you've ever wanted to go inside the mind of your "sensitive" friend or family member, here you go:
  1. 1.
    I cried when my professor refused to accept my late homework last week.
  2. 2.
    I use at least two emojis per text message. πŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚
  3. 3.
    Sometimes I have to write three pages worth of thoughts to get to work thru my feelings, when a logic-based person can get do so by just saying: "That was stupid. I'll just ignore it."
  4. 4.
    If a video description says it will "make you cry," I feel magnetically drawn to the PLAY button.
  5. 5.
    Receiving a gift is SO EXCITING. By giving me that present, you unleashed a whirlwind of emotions: Gratitude, excitement, even worry (that I can't express how thankful I truly am). I'm like a melting pot of emotions that's boiling over!🎁
  6. 6.
    I take pictures of special moments and journal about them, because twenty years from now, how could I not want to know the way I felt when my bike tire went flat and I had to walk to class. πŸš΄πŸΌπŸ“·
  7. 7.
    I have an entire Pinterest board full of inspirational quotes.
  8. 8.
    When I feel compelled to laugh at an inappropriate time, I think about when my grandpa died. I get really somber, really fast.
  9. 9.
    "How are you?" Isn't a question that can be answered in one word. πŸ˜”πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜’ How about: "I'm pretty content, but a little anxious about this relationship that makes me excited but also a bit apprehensive because it feels rushed and I don't know how confident I feel about stepping into something new when I am already so joyful where I am."
  10. 10.
    I used to cry every time I was told something I "could work on," whether as a student or an athlete or a daughter. Now, I'm learning to harness my emotional strengths into motivation and drive. I can now see that there are some definite benefits to being so emotional: It means I don't stand for giving up. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
