They cry a lot.
Most of the time they cry because they are hungry, wet, lonely, in pain or just want your attention.
Then there are times when they cannot be soothed.
No matter what. They just cry.
When you grow up, you are expected to stop doing that.
When you grow up, you are expected to be able to able to explain your every mood and emotional reaction.
Why are you angry?
Why are you sad?
Why did you react this way or that way?
Then there are times when we just fucking react and perhaps don’t have an explanation.
Tonight I tried to explain/ analyze/ figure out my abruptly violent emotional reaction to a joke and I failed miserably.
I am sitting here wondering why and whether or not some psycho analysis would even yield an answer.
Perhaps I was simply being a baby and having an unsoothable moment where I just want to have all the emotions in the world and have no explanation for it.
Or I could file it under hormones. A perfectly logical explanation.
