The question today is:
What makes you weepy?
Oh my frakken god ... EVERYTHING! I cry at the drop of a hat, and then I'm most likely crying because the hat has been dropped in a puddle or got coffee knocked all over it.
I cry at sad movies. I cry at happy movies. I cry when one minute of a really crappy film turns out to be the one moment of goodness that restores my faith in everything. I cry at an emotional event. Then hours, days, even months and years later, I cry remembering it all again. I cry when I see a couple being affectionate to each other on the bus. I cry when I hear certain pieces of music.
Actually, I bawl my eyes at music a lot.
I think you get the point.
My fella was joking when he first said it, but I think he might actually make it official - I'm banned from watching the finale of Battlestar Galactica ever again. I won't reveal any spoilers, but if you've seen it, you know how much happens in that last hour of the show, and I pretty much have a nervous breakdown watching it.
Every. Single. Time.
Being a recovering alcoholic, I've had to confront a lot of my demons and issues and work them out. It's been 6 years, and though I've made great strides in certain areas, there are still quite a few that need constant work. I used to go right to the bottle to hide from everything, but handling situations sober now has made me so much stronger than I could have ever imagined.
I'm a very sensitive person, so now when I'm faced with something that would make me drink years ago, I tackle it head-on .... yet I can't stop the wave of emotions that still sweep right over, under, and through me.
I wouldn't change it for anything in the world, though. It brings me back into the moment and makes me fully aware of being alive and grateful for all that I have. I'd rather be full of feeling than absolutely dead inside.
Great ... writing that last sentence has made my eyes water. Sigh.
