You are allowed to get upset and cry over something small. You are allowed to defend yourself when your feelings are hurt You are allowed to be upset You are allowed to cry You are allowed to want to be treated better You are allowed to express your emotions You don’t have to scold yourself for feeling It’s natural and normal to feel emotions and you don’t have to be ashamed It’s okay. destroy the idea that crying is negative. crying is relief, a way to let all of the sadness, anger, joy and emotion out. end the idea that we need to stop crying, stop letting out emotion, stop being human. end it. your feelings are valid. you have every right to feel whatever emotion you want. you aren’t being dramatic. you aren’t over exaggerating. you’re simply feeling. and that’s okay. {image description: a yellow image with “crying isn’t weak” written in the middle} #cryingpositivity #positivityfairy #positivityquotes #emotionpositivity
