While Cry It Out (CIO) usually refers to a baby sleep training method, I call it my coping method.
I‘d like to tell you that I’m one of those strong people who is always smiling and never complaining. I’d like to tell you that I always have a positive outlook and am optimistic about the future. The truth is, I’m not. I’m scared. I try to stay positive. I truly believe in self-fulfilling prophecies. But, I also cry. I cry because I hurt. I cry because I‘m tired. I cry because I’m frustrated that I’m not able to do the things I enjoy. I cry because I’m scared of what the future holds. When I’m done feeling sorry for myself, I cry because I am grateful.
