Something began to stir within me and I knew I needed a moment to process. I felt like going outside to have a moment alone with a beautiful view on a sunny day. I sat down on a big rock. And I just started to cry, and as I did, I really acknowledged the depth of some of my feeling, and my sense of loss over things I had experienced.
One of the things that I learned growing up is not to show my emotions. Sometimes we can hide our feelings pretty well, but when it comes to sadness that’s a hard one to keep inside for too long. Sometimes that sadness creeps out in places where you didn’t know it would come out.
