This isn't a big deal......it's not important......but I have a confession, just a small one, and I need to offload it and then move on.

sigh..............here goes...

I avoid watching certain films with my family because I know I will cry at important moments. I have degenerated from "raising the knee and hiding behind it" via simply walking out of the room at the key moment to "make a cuppa" to "not even bothering to watch at all". TThis can't go on. I'm missing out.

So, my simple and unimportant resolution to you all, and to my family, is that I will embrace my emotional outbursts and actually look forward to some great times.

So I plan to now watch all of Toy Story 3 (i never got past the beginning of the incinerator scene previously).................and Christmas Eve is now all about "It's a Wonderful Life".

:):cry::)

Why is that we rough, tough MEN don't like to show emotion :confused:

We never admit that something hurts physically, let alone mentally and I
don't think it does us any good.

We won't admit we are ill... unless it's a simple cold and then for some
reason we hide behind ManFlu as if that demonstrates our masculinity.

I'm not suggesting that we should turn into hand wringing weepers but letting
out a bit of emotion does a power of good.

Two expressions I hate, in this context are 'man up' and 'suck it up'
No I won't...... it bloody hurts and I'm going to show that it does.

I'm with you Steve... the odd tear may roll down my face this Christmas :thumbs:

[Random thought: why is it OK for soccer players to overact the pain
of an injury.... it's pure cheating I guess.... so that's manly :confused:]
