I wish I could tell you the number of times I’ve gotten a text from a friend with some version of “am I crazy for …” They go into a story about how their ex boyfriend’s new girlfriend followed them on Twitter and they’re upset. Maybe they met a cute boy, followed him on Instagram and looked through all of his pictures. Every time I reassure my friend that they are, in fact, not crazy. They do the same for me more than I’d like to admit.
Let me reassure you of the same thing I reassure my friends: you’re not crazy. Whether you made a C on an exam and you’re upset. Maybe you got frustrated with your significant other because you left your keys in their car and they drove off with them. You aren’t crazy. How you’re feeling is called being human. We all experience similar anxiety. You have feelings. You are entitled to be upset, hurt, curious, whatever you want to be – within reason.
There are a lot of reasons we as women feel crazy. It doesn’t always have to do with guys. Sometimes our hair just won’t sit the right way, or we got mascara on our eyelid when we’re in a rush to get out of the house. Don’t even get me started on the days where nothing in your closet fits the right way, so you just give up and throw on leggings and a t-shirt. There is nothing at all wrong with how you’re feeling. Some days just do not go the right way. Sometimes you really do need to Twitter stalk that new member because you want her as a little. Whatever it is you feel crazy for, I promise most of us have been there a time or two. Everyone can sympathize with how you’re feeling.
