Day 3: Crying in the shower

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

So who on here cries in the shower? emoticon

When ever I break down, this is the place I usually do it. It is something about being alone having water coming down on you making it ok for the tears to flow. After my weigh in this morning I broke down in the shower.

I feel ashamed of myself. Mad at myself.

But you know what, as soon as those tears started to flow the fire was lit and I turned it around saying to myself, "Elaine... put those big girl pants back on"!

I am stubborn. I also love challenging myself. But for some reason lately my motivation has not been there. Crying in the shower this morning... actually physically breaking down was exactly what I needed. I need to get that fire going again. I need to be stubborn and fight for myself like I have time and time again. So big girl pants are on.... Crying is done... and I am ready to work!

Never be ashamed of reaching your breaking point. Sometimes that is what we exactly need to succeed!

    oh yes, I cry in the shower often. I think it's the perfect place to cry. It's private,the sound is muffled, and the warm water is a comfort. And like KAY said, there's nothing to explain...that's an excellent point! Sometimes the emotion just needs to come out, it doesn't need a conversation.

    Take care of you, you've got this.

    Yes thank you so much for sharing, the shower is where I cry also so no one hears me, and I can break down, without having to explain. Yes that is what we exactly need to succeed as women.

    Look forward to hear how you are doing.
