I am too emotional. It needs to stop. Even though I manage to hide it in professional setting. It's hard to control otherwise. I tend to take life events very personally. Now that I am aware of the issue, I try to distance myself from events a bit more! give myself sometime before reacting or answering emails. but yesterday when I was highlighting few issues I had to my Dd's nursery and my eyes filled up with tears. I almost cryed over a minor minor issue, in front of a stranger. I simply got carried away.
Is anyone having the same problem? Any advice how to overcome this. blush

I am like this too. Anything and everything makes me cry, it's very embarrassing.

I have this problem too, especially when I am passionate about something or frustrated/ angry. I have tried and tried to control it but I can't.

the thing is, I'am not weak. I know that because I overcame few hurdles but being emotional projects the image that I am weak, which doesn't do me any favours sad

PS: this is FFTM

Can't work out FFTM? I am very emotional too. I think that it is our way of releasing pressure whereas some people lose their temper or simmer with resentment. I like to think of it as better than smashing up the place! Definitely don't think it is weakness. More healing, I would say but yes it can cause embarrassment at times!


I spent all day crying today when i wasnt asleep. So yeah you are not alone.

I've had this problem since I had fertility treatment. It's like it opened the floodgates of getting emotional over everything and I can't close them again.

I think OP has namechanged so she is just clarifying that she's the same person.

I'm the same and it's so embarrassing. Have had similar situations with nurseries/school as OP and I must look like a right prat.
