Before we jump into today’s guest post from Holly Caplan, I wanted to chat about my own experience crying in the workplace, and why I thought Holly’s expertise would help millennial women everywhere.
I’ve definitely cried at work before. I cried more than a few times at work when I was a graduate and research assistant, and I cry sometimes now (although it’s a lot easier because I am a freelancer and I work from home.) I loved having an office when I was a GA because I could tuck away in my office and let out a few tears when my job got particularly stressful. My goal was to not to cry in front of my professors though. I’m fairly sure I managed not to cry that way. It’s okay to be emotional, but the more you can control it, the better it will before you in the long run.
I know that my audience is filled with bright, amazing women across the country. I thought that Holly could shed some great light on crying in the workplace for y’all, so that you are prepared for what the working world may bring.
But, I am being chatty, so I will let Holly take over from here, she is the expert after all!
