Beer count: 5 , a scotch, and some lolcats.
I find myself here. So I have a confession. I have trouble showing my emotions, seriously. I can feel emotionally, I just don’t show it. For example, I was in a seriously committed, long relationship that ended. Having one of these last heart-to-heart conversations with my ex, I couldn’t help but notice how emotional she was, read: crying. I didn’t know what to do. So I excused myself to the bathroom. In the bathroom I took a good, long look in the mirror and asked myself the same question I always seem to ask myself, “How can I care?” Luckily an answer found me. Looking at myself in the mirror so long made me notice I had a nose hair that was feeling quite adventurous. It was sticking out enough for me to pull it out. It really hurt. But more importantly, I found that by pulling it out, I made my eyes tear. I quickly tried to pull out a few more nose hairs until finally, I was showing enough tears to look like I was crying. I left the bathroom back to my crying ex, and showed her how much I cared as well.
