You better watch out

You better not cry

You better not pout

Because Santa has unrealistic expectations for your psychological well-being Crying is a healthy way to process your emotions

Like grief or frustration or sadness or joy

Trying to bottle up isn’t healthy or smart

Trying to control them isn’t wise

Take it from someone who didn’t cry for four years after his friend died in high school

It felt way better when I finally cried again

So just let the tears come when they need to

And you’ll be happier in the long term

No matter what that creepy old leprechaun thinks
