Sometimes all it takes is for a service appointment to be missed, twice. Then, suddenly and without warning after scheduling a third appointment the eyes get moist and then it starts– for no apparent reason — the tears start and then come harder, like it seems they never will stop. All that goes through your mind is that there is no rational reason for this — this is not normal for you — what is happening?! Then your mind goes to everything else over the last few days, weeks or months that has not gone right and then it jumps to a whole bunch of things that are undecided and there you are. You are at the point of not having a clue how everything got to this point and then right back to trying to figure out why the tears are still coming. After all, it is not the biggest thing in the world and in the grand scheme of things a missed service appointment is probably near the bottom of the list of important details that must be handled.
Wow! Are you tired yet? I am — It wore me out just typing all of that, but it doesn’t compare to the feeling after enduring it; we all have been there. While this is an exhausting process, it is often necessary to serve as an emotional cleansing. Sometimes the best thing you can do is let the tears flow — trying to stop them is not only futile, but it can often make you feel worse. Don’t let you convince yourself that it is all about a silly missed appointment or two. More than likely it is the latest drop in a very worn out bucked that lets the damn burst and send the tears forth; you know –the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. Give yourself break — it has probably been building for a while, even longer than you think. Let the tears do their job as a pressure relief and then you can go on about your day. An afternoon or morning of tears doesn’t mean you are falling apart — it probably means that you won’t. Well, at least that is what I tell myself — and I wouldn’t lie to me! Right?
