“Girls are crazy!”
Or are they? I’m sure we have all been accused of being “crazy” and I’ll admit, there have been a few times when it’s been appropriate. But have you ever thought that there’s a reason to your “crazy” actions? Maybe, just maybe, you’re acting this way because you finally can’t hold back after another fight or he finally pushed all of your buttons. Every single last one. And then, BOOM! The finger is pointed at you for being “crazy” even though during all the heartache, all the hurt and all the sadness you’ve kept your cool. Yes, that makes you crazy. (That was 100% sarcastic…) You’re not acting crazy.

Ask a friend
If you feel you’re getting to that point of acting crazy, ask a friend. Find someone who can give you an honest opinion. Show them what you’re reacting about and how you’re reacting. Would they be upset too? If not, do they understand why you’re so upset? Obviously they won’t know the entire situation but show them a taste of what’s going on. It’s important to be honest to your friend as well. Make sure that they understand both sides of the story because I’m sure there was a word or two you might have used that wasn’t too nice either. If they’re an honest and true friend, they will be able to tell you that you might be acting a little out of line or that you’re not acting crazy at all.
It’s important to take a few minutes/hours/days to reflect on the situation. Would you normally be upset about this? Are you upset because of this situation and A, B or C? Is there any additional stress in your life helping to push you over the edge? Take some time to really think about what’s going on. Write down a list of what you’re so upset about that it’s making you hit “crazy” status. I have a feeling that this list will most likely end up being a lot longer than you expected. If possible, try to unplug. Put away your cell phone and spend time focusing on what the hell is going on.
Show Your Emotions
So many of us feel nervous to let our emotions go because we might be considered the “crazy” girlfriend. FYI – that’s the last thing a girl wants to be called. Ever. Now, if you’re anything like me, I used to suck at showing my emotions – even to myself. Take time to yourself to feel all of the emotions that are coming over you right now. If you’re sad – cry. If you’re angry – scream. Let it out and believe me when I tell you that you’re not acting crazy. You’re a human person with real, raw emotions and sometimes we have to let it all out before we can move forward.
You’re Not Acting Crazy
Remember, women are emotional creatures and far more emotional than men. Yay us! So yes, to them it might seem that we’re acting crazy. But think about those moments when you or someone else thought you were acting crazy. It’s because you cared. You were passionate about the subject at hand. And you would have done anything and everything for the person who just broke your heart. Girl, you’re not acting crazy. Someone has finally drained every last ounce of patience, energy and emotion out of you. You’re broken and hurt but I promise, that soon enough you will be healed and loved.
