I’m not here to tell you that it is silly that men are not allowed to cry.
I don’t even want to tell you how ridiculous it is that when a woman cries, it is seen as a weakness.
We all know that, don’t we?
Or do we?
When was the last time you cried in a business conversation?
And did you feel strong?
I cry a lot, since my transition, and it feels like a blessing.
My crying is not about feeling sad, mostly it’s about feeling so f*ng wonderful I can’t hardly believe it, and yes there are bits of grieve.
I also cry when I feel connection.
I cry when I speak to someone and I can feel the truth they are speaking out.
I cry when I feel the power that lies within you and me.
So please, when we meet, don’t take my crying for a small moment of weakness. Don’t think it is because it’s all too much. It’s about feeling beauty, and beauty can never be too much.
I would dearly love to see us all crying more, and feel it’s strength, our strength.
