I am the kind of person who feels things deeply and reacts emotionally. I definitely weep with my whole heart. I used to be bothered by my uncontrolled outpouring of tears and sadness and grief while seeing other people not being visibly moved. I have gotten past that. I realize it’s natural for me to show honest emotion, and it is also healthy. Sometimes there is nothing as therapeutic as a good cry.
On the other hand, I am also able to laugh and enjoy life and have a good time. I love the times when I laugh so hard that I can barely catch my breath or when I end up holding my abdomen because it hurts. To be able to really laugh at life and ourselves is a wonderful thing.
To me Golda Meir said it very well.
Golda Meir (1898 – 1978) was the fourth prime minister of Israel.
