I must begin this post by advising that I work in an assisting role in an emergency room. So I obviously see and have seen some pretty bad things. I compartmentalize my feelings when I am there to the point that some people probably think me cold-hearted. But it seems that in non-work mode, ever since I turned 30, I cry at the drop of a hat.
Here are some examples:
*crying while driving the 2 hours to see my boyfriend because a song came on the radio (“OMG! Sugarland’s ‘Stay’!”)
*crying because someone on TV/in a movie is crying
*crying when I read some FB posts (not
Just from the grammar)
*crying at my favorite band’s concert.
Does anyone else feel they have become more emotional after 30? Or do I have an imbalance? What else seems to have changed for you emotionally since 30?
