You’re Emotional and That’s Beautiful

Originally posted on joenasandiego.com :
“Well, I’m really emotional at times.” I heard that from a friend two weeks ago. It left tons of questioning in my heart yet I remained silent. “My boyfriend doesn’t want it when I’m sad. He gets angry when I’m emotional.” Another friend weepingly uttered those lines two days ago.…
