Nicole & Maggie had a post about this the other day, but I had written and scheduled this before so I figured I’d still post it.
One of my most embarrassing behaviours is the fact that I tend to tear up when frustrated or angry.
This is incredibly annoying when I’m in an argument with DH and I’m trying to be angry, but I end up crying.
It’s even worse when it happens in a work environment. I feel like it makes me look weak, like I can’t handle things. It clearly can leave a bad impression, and it can make people uncomfortable.
I don’t know how to stop it, and it drives me crazy!
I’m a very emotional person in general, and have a hard time hiding my true feelings. I find it hard to lie, even in situations where I know that I should just SHUT UP. These could be seen as strengths, but in some cases it really gets me into trouble or makes me look really bad.
Any one else like this? Anyone able to overcome it (especially the tearing-up)? Tips? Suggestions?
