I cry. Constantly. I remember trying to make an important point to my boss while mascara was streaming down my face. I looked like a fool. I sounded nuts.
I didn’t think so at the time. I thought it was my right as a woman to express my emotions in a manner that best suited me. God help the sexist fool who told me not to cry at the office.
I was wrong.
So I’m here to tell you that you can cry at work. You can have strong opinions at work. But it’s like texting and driving. You can’t do both at the same time.
I wish someone would have told me this sooner.
