This Woman’s Powerful Message About Crying in the Shower Is Going Viral


Because we could all use a healthy cry every once in a while.

Women and mothers, as a whole, are resilient as hell. There are no other living beings on earth better able to adapt to tough circumstances and endure hardships quite like women.

Brittany Latham, a photographer and mother of two from Mobile, AL, posted a photo of a balled-up woman crying the shower with makeup running down her face. In the caption, Brittany dedicated it to women who are suffering through hidden struggles.

She sends tributes to a wide range of women, like those who are dealing with judgement and mom shaming:

“For the woman who has a line of judging eyes at her and her children as she slides her EBT card at the grocery store.”

“For the woman that heard the rumor about herself at church today.”

“For the woman whose genetics will never allow her to look like the ones in the magazines.”

And those who are having fertility and pregnancy issues:

“For the woman who is mourning the loss of a pregnancy that nobody else knew about.”

“For the woman who has gone through 2 IVF’s and has tried for five years without success but still shows up to every baby shower for her friends.”

And even the moms who are just plain tired and stressed from parenting:

“For the woman that gives to her family all day, everyday and just needs a break.”

“For the woman who was fired for her fourth tardy because she has been awake for a straight week with a sick child.”

“For the woman that lives a with a quiet anxiety because nobody understands what you could possibly [be] stressed about.”
