In the video, posted without any caption or onscreen text, the mom begins by saying tearfully, “It’s alright. It’s alright, I feel that way too. We’ll feel that way together, OK?”
As the emotions sweep over her, she begins to cry harder, saying between sobs, “Let it out, let it out” — then suddenly she lets out a powerful scream. She pauses, then lets out another.
After taking a few shaky breaths, with tears rolling down her cheeks, the mom continues, “Everybody wants to show their happy side. I’m mad as hell today!”
She lets out another scream, then takes a few more deep breaths. Finally, she ends her video by saying, “But because I have responsibilities, I’m gonna do these friggin’ dishes. It’s gonna be alright.”
