This one is directed mostly towards the guys...
I am under a lot of stress right now in my life and training is my time to just forget about everything. I leave everything behind when I step on the mats, and for the next 2 hours I am as happy as can be. The exception is when I start getting frustrated with something. Maybe the same person keeps catching me with the same move over and over, or I just can't quite get my body to move in the right way. If I allow these minor things to get to me my happy bubble feels like it bursts and all of my stressful emotions start flooding in. Next thing I know my face is getting warm and my eyes start to swell up with tears. I try so hard no to let them fall, but the moment someone says, "Hey, are you okay?", they start pouring out. I hate it, but when I am stressed out and then get frustrated that's just how my body reacts.
So please don't ask me if everything is okay, or if there is anything you can do to help. You can help by not saying anything and letting me regain my composure.
