To say that the last two years have been an emotional roller coaster would be an understatement. With the racial injustice crisis, the global pandemic, and for me personally, my Mama’s journey with Alzheimer’s — I’ve been crying a LOT. I cry when I’m sad, happy, frustrated, angry — you name it.
But even though I’m a big advocate for crying, I know that there’s still massive stigma attached to doing so, which is so problematic! It takes an incredible amount of courage to be open and authentic with how you’re feeling and share this with others.
In this video, I talk about why there continues to be stigma about crying (hint hint: sexism and racism have a lot to do with it!), why crying is actually good for you, and how I embrace this important release of emotions.
